Given your one-to-one mapping between the two arrays (i.e., the same number of elements) and the numbers in @array1 are not repeated, consider the following:
Two hashes are created. The first (%array1Hash) pairs each element of @array1 with its position in the array. The second (%hash) pairs the elements of @array1 as the keys with the elements of @array2 as values. When you've found the minimum value in @array1, you can use it as the key to get the associated value from @array2.
Hope this helps!
Update: Added printing the min val of @array1 and that element's position in the array.
