## Maximum among the tables values

i want to know the maximum of population and get the city value. This i could do easily with the following expression

Only(If(Population=Max(Total (Population)),City))

But my question is when i have same value of population, then also i should get city ,but it should be break the tie taking GDP into consideration and look for highest gdp between max populatoin.

for eg In the above pic i should get City=C has a value. Since Population of A and C is same , it is tie, then we need to consider gdP into account and Since C has more GDp, output should be City=C. How to get this?

## Re: Maximum among the tables values

I think you might have a mistake in your sample where the max population is 23412 for City B... assuming this is a typo... you can try this

FirstSortedValue(City, -(Population + GDP/1E10))

For that B shpuld be returned As the city, since it is having more population. That i can achieve. I'm only concerned about the second image, when i have equal population then the Highest with gdp should be returned.

But if the data remains the same... the highest population is still from City B, right? Are you selecting first based on GDP and then Population?

## Re: Maximum among the tables values

Also can you explain the expression. Its quite tricky

## Re: Maximum among the tables values

If there is no any tie between population, then I want B . That is correct.

When i have same value of population, then i want gdp factor. I agree that Even then B is highly populated. But i want C to be the answer .

I want the expression to check if there is no same population, if no then B should be returned without considering GDP.

If there is 2 or more same population, then gdp should break the tie.

I don't understand how this will expand if you have multiple cities with same populations... but for your current example.. you can try this

=If(Len(Trim(FirstSortedValue({<Population = {"=Count(Population) >= 2"}>}City, -(Population + GDP/1E10)))) > 0, FirstSortedValue({<Population = {"=Count(Population) >= 2"}>}City, -(Population + GDP/1E10)), FirstSortedValue(City, -Population))
