# Formula To Pick Out 5 Lowest Numbers

Aug 9, 2007

I have numbers in K12 thru K23 (a few of the cells are blank)

The formula below is what I'm using to figure a golf handicap. I have 40 handicaps to figure this way.

=(((K15+K21+K19+K23+K18)/5)-37)*0.9

I manually picked out the 5 lowest numbers in column K for the formula. I think there should be a better/easier way. Can anyone help me?

## Formula To Pick Up Negative And Or Positive Numbers?

Jul 17, 2013

I have the following formula
=IF(VLOOKUP(F89,'2013 susp 2714035 Reissues'!F:F,1,FALSE)=F89,"yes",FALSE)

That is supposed to look at the tab 2714035 Reissues and find the same dollar amount. The issue Iam having is the dollar amount can be a negative or a positive amount but the formula is only picking up the number if it matches exactly negative to negative or positive to positive. formula to pick up the matching number if its a negative or a positive.

## Find Lowest Percentage In A Series Of Numbers

May 27, 2014

I have a series of numbers in cells B2 to G2. The maximum value of each of these columns is found in B5 to G5. Is there a formula that will calculate the percentage of each of the values in row 2 (B2 to G2) and tell me which is the lowest number based on the percentage? Example...

Row 2: 12, 100, 43, 1444, 141, 332
Row 5: 25, 140, 55, 3000, 244, 440

Which number in row 2, is the lowest percentage of the total possible points found in row 5?

B2 is 45% (12 divided by 25), C2 is 71%, D2 is 78%, E2 is 48%, F2 is 58%, G2 is 75%.

I want a formula to tell me in a new cell that "12" (in B2) is the lowest percentage in that series.

## Picking 5 Highest/lowest Numbers From A List

Jul 17, 2009

I am trying to generate a list of the 5 highest and 5 lowest numbers from a list of scores that range from 1 to 10. I have found the highest and lowest absolute values (numbers over 7.5, and less than 5, out of 10), but I would also like to generate the 5 highest and lowest relative numbers, ie. if there are no scores over 7.5, then the 5 next highest numbers. I have used if/then formulas for the absolute highest and lowest numbers, and a rank/countif formula to rank them. I have no idea how to generate a list of the "relative strengths and weaknesses".

## Find Four Highest And Lowest Numbers (sorted By Date)

Jul 6, 2013

I have two sheets:

Sheet one has dates, my prices on each of those days, and the fields h1 h2 h3 h4 (h1 is the closest higher number, h2 is the next closet higher number, etc.) and l1 l2 l3 l4 (l1 is the closest lower number, etc. etc.)

Sheet two has certain dates and prices of a competitor's prices.

What I'm trying to do is two things (see attached):
1) find the four closest higher and four closest lower prices (if available)
2) use only the prices that are on or before the date in question.

I've tried combinations like LARGE and OFFSET and so far it is not getting me anywhere.

Can this be done???

## Formula To Pick Last Value In A Column

Mar 23, 2009

Is there a formula or function that allows me to always select the lowest (not min) actual lowest in a column? For example, I have a formula in A1 and I need it part of it to always reference the bottom of a certain range (i.e. A5.A200).

So one day the lowest would be A7 but a week later it could be A8. I don't want to have to keep changing the formula in A1 to find the lowest value. I will be adding data on a regular basis.

## Make Formula Pick Up Filename From A Different Cell...

Feb 9, 2010

I have a formula that looks like this : ='G:STOCKS[1001 Stock.xls]Matl%'!\$I\$32

There are hundreds of similar formulas, all referencing different cells in the same file. The “1001” bit refers to the date, and next month it will need to say “1002” to pick up the new month's file. I would like to hold the “1002” bit in a cell (say A1), so that at month end, I just change that one cell, and all the formulas will point to the new file, but I’m not sure how to work that into the formula.

## Formula To Pick Out Text In Middle Of String And Return

Jan 20, 2014

I am looking for a formula to remove the text 2.2 from the string Rav4 2.2 D-4d X or 1.33 out of Yaris 1.33 Vvt etc, I have tried using the formula

=IF(P2="","",VLOOKUP("*"&P2&"*",AM\$1:AN\$25,2,1))

But it just keeps returning #N/A. I have all the variables outlined in cells AM\$1:AN\$25 hence the reference. I currently have the formula

=IF(P2="","",VLOOKUP(P2&"*",AK\$1:AL\$25,2,1))

Which is working perfectly @ finding and returning the start of the string but just cannot get the one to find the middle characters.

## Formula To Find Lowest Unique Number In Series

Sep 22, 2009

I'm holding a Reverse Auction where people pay a dollar to place a bid, BUT the twist is they are giving me a number that they how will be the lowest number but it has to be the only occurrence of that number (greater than 0).

During the party people can guess as much as they want to pay. I think i'll use a spreadsheet with their names in column A and go out in the row with however many cells for how many numbers they guess (so there would be blank cells in the overall range of the whole list if one guy buys 10 numbers and another only 1, for example).

So, i need a cell at the bottom that tells me the lowest number that wasn't guessed more than one time.

I've found how to FIND duplicates and the lowest number but i don't know how to write it so that it discards the duplicates.
