# Count the Occurrences of the Largest or Smallest Value in a Range

Author:

How to count the occurrence of the largest or smallest value in a range; basically, how many times the MAX or MIN value occurs in a range.

Max

Min

Notes

## Max

``````=COUNTIF(A1:A6,MAX(A1:A6))
``````

A1:A6 is the range with the values. Change that in both places in the formula to fit your data.

Result:

The MAX() function gets the highest value from the range and then returns that to the COUNTIF() function, which uses that to determine which values in the range to count.

## Min

``````=COUNTIF(A1:A6,MIN(A1:A6))
``````

A1:A6 is the range with the values. Change that in both places in the formula to fit your data.

Result:

The MIN() function gets the lowest value from the range and then returns that to the COUNTIF() function, which uses that to determine which values in the range to count.

## Notes

This is a simple combination of two functions in order to return the count; nothing more takes place here, just some function nesting.
