The RANK function returns the rank of a number within an array or set numbers without sorting the numbers.
RANK is an inbuilt function in Excel. It is under the category of Statistical Functions. As a worksheet function, you can enter the RANK function as part of a formula in a cell of a worksheet.
This function determines the relative position or order of one value in a given range of data.
Thus, it is not necessary to sort data in either ascending or descending order to see the rankings of values in a given range of data.
