Back to all functions

In this lesson we will show the LARGE and SMALL functions, which return the Nth largest or smallest value in a group of cells, where n is the position from the maximum or minimum value.
To explain, let’s say we want to find the fourth largest number in this range of cells. We would write Equals, LARGE, select the range, and then type the number four. We receive the number seven.
We can verify that seven is in fact the fourth largest number in the range by sorting the list from lowest to highest values.
The same can be done to find, for example, the third smallest value in the range. Equals, SMALL, select the range, and type the number 3. Once again, we can confirm that this is the case by sorting.
In this lesson we have gone through the LARGE, and SMALL functions.
