Find the maximum value from a list of data and also the value that results in the maximum data.
I have attached a mathcad prime 5 file and pic if you dont have Prime 5
Solved! Go to Solution.
So here is one way to get what you are looking for:
File in Format Prime 5 attached.
Its not clear to me what values you look at to find the maximum.
Are you looking for the maximum of the 11 values which are calculated by
25*sin(j) * 15*sin(j) * ... * 20*sin(j)
as you write about the max value of the "product" (which?).
Or are you looking at the max of the 88 different values calculated by
25*sin(j)
15*sin(j)
...
In both cases it would suffice to look for the max of the eleven sin(j) values and you get the max always for j=1
You may use jmax:=lookup(max(sin(j)), sin(j), j)[0 to find out that jmax=1.
Hi
I am after the max of 88 values.
The function may not be sine it could just be an list of numbers

Here is a different approach using a used defined utility function
Here's a compact implementation that also works in Prime Express:
Prime 4 file is attached.
Success!
