# MAXA

Formulas / MAXA
Find the largest numeric value in a range.
`=MAXA(value1, [value2], â€¦)`
• value1 - required
• value2 - [OPTIONAL]
• value3 - [OPTIONAL]
• value4 - [OPTIONAL]
• value5 - [OPTIONAL]
• value6 - [OPTIONAL]
• value7 - [OPTIONAL]
• value8 - [OPTIONAL]
• value9 - [OPTIONAL]
• value10 - [OPTIONAL]
• value11 - [OPTIONAL]
• value12 - [OPTIONAL]
• value13 - [OPTIONAL]
• value14 - [OPTIONAL]
• value15 - [OPTIONAL]

## Examples

• `=MAXA(12,17,25,11,23)`

The example returns 25. This is because MAXA is a function used to determine the maximum value of a given set of numbers. In this example, 25 is the maximum value, so it is returned.

• `=MAXA(5,10)`

The example returns returns 10. This is because 10 is the highest value in the set of numbers, so it is returned as the maximum value.

• `=MAXA(A1:A10)`

The example returns returns the maximum value in A1:A10. MAXA is used to determine the highest numerical value in a given range of cells. In this example, the function will return the highest value in A1:A10.

## Summary

The MAXA function returns the largest value in a list of numerical, name, array, and reference arguments. It ignores empty cells and text values in arguments that are arrays or references.

• The MAXA function returns the largest value in a range of numbers and takes multiple arguments, which can be numbers, strings, arrays, or references.
• MAXA ignores empty cells, logical values, and text values.
• The MAX function allows for the ignoring of logical values and text values.
• MAXA evaluates text as a 0.
