Problem 56508. Cricket - Represent Average in "Dulkars" and "Ses"

Sachin Tendulkar's Test average was 53.78. So if Tendulkar = 53.78, one dulkar = 5.378. Similarly, Roger Twose's average was 25.12. So if Twose = 25.12, one se = 12.56.
Given a batter's average x, return a 2-element vector v = [s d] that represents the number of whole (integer) units of Ses (12.56) and Dulkars (5.38) that most closely represents x. That is, , where .
For example, if x = 31.12, v = [2 1]:
A table showing various possible combinations of s and d, and the resulting value of 12.56*s + 5.38*d. The difference between this value and the target value of 31.12 is shown with color coding. The smallest difference is highlighted, corresponding to s = 2 and d = 1 (for which 12.56*s + 5.38*d is 30.5)
