LARGE: Google Sheets Formulae Explained

How do you use LARGE in Google Sheets?

There are a few ways to use LARGE in Google Sheets. The first way is to use the function as a formula. To do this, you would type "=LARGE(range, n)" into a cell, where "range" is the range of cells you want to look at and "n" is the number of the largest value you want to return from that range. The second way to use LARGE is to use it as a function argument in a chart. To do this, you would type "=LARGE(data, k)" into the "X" axis label box in the chart properties, where "data" is the data you want to use and "k" is the number of the largest value you want to return from that data. The third way to use LARGE is to use it as a function argument in a pivot table. To do this, you would type "=LARGE(data, k)" into the "Row" or "Column" box in the pivot table properties, where "data" is the data you want to use and "k" is the number of the largest value you want to return from that data.
