Get the nth largest value
The nth largest value in the array.
=LARGE (array, n)
- array – The array from which you want to select the kth largest value.
- n – An integer that specifies the position from the largest value, i.e. the nth position.
The LARGE function is useful when you want to retrieve “top” values from a set of data. For example, the first, second, and third results in a competition.
array can be an array constant or a range of cells.
n is the position away from the largest value. For example, use 2 for the 2nd largest value, 3 for the 3rd largest value, etc.
Microsoft uses “k” instead of “n” in their function documentation. Exceljet uses n because “nth” is more familiar than “kth”.
