00:00

So in this exercise we have, ah, results off semifinals

00:06

men's 100 meter race competition.

00:11

And there were three races, three heats

00:13

and in each there were eight competitors, and the rules for qualifying into finals are

00:20

that 1st 2 in each race get qualified by position

00:27

and out off remaining

00:30

18 competitors. That's court in their races between third and eighth place

00:39

two will be selected based on best results. So, out of these 16 we have to pick two with best

00:46

results, meaning the lowest ones.

00:49

And they will also get qualified to the

00:53

race,

00:54

do the final race. Now, um,

00:58

we have these results

01:00

and we're

01:02

expecting that they are different,

01:04

all of them within one race. So it is possible that two competitors to two athletes will have the same result. But then the photo finish will decide who is

01:17

better out of these two.

01:19

So, um,

01:19

um,

01:22

we're is going to assume that they are

01:25

all different, because if they were all the same, then the referees would correct the rink manually. So we're going to do it just like they're different

01:34

and, uh, so, so determined ranking.

01:38

We have to look a tw three groups off eight competitors. So this is the first race, second race and third race

01:49

and look a TTE

01:52

their results for that. We're going to use if and large functions combined together. So if you remember large functions, looks at the range

02:01

and returns the

02:04

value that is on the end position,

02:07

10th position and number and his second perimeter in the function definition. So let's see how it works. So you were going to say, If

02:19

yeah, if

02:21

and then

02:23

so the result of this competitors

02:25

if it's equal to large

02:30

off

02:31

this range here.

02:35

So if three to F 10

02:38

it's all right.

02:40

And, ah, we want to find who's number one. So we say

02:46

it's the eighth position because the lowest is the better best.

02:52

And it's always,

02:53

uh, large is always

02:55

looking in the order higher, highest to lowest

03:01

because it's large.

03:04

And in that case, if that's true,

03:07

we're going to put here rank number one.

03:10

If not, we're going to continue with this and we're going to say if and then

03:16

again, if

03:19

this cell here

03:22

so again F three equals

03:27

now we're going just to do some corrections. We have to put a dollar sign here because we're going to copy this election and we want throws to remain a changed,

03:37

and then we're going to

03:42

just copy D's.

03:46

So if after e equals

03:49

sorry,

03:52

large off that and now we're looking

03:57

at the Position seven

04:02

and then the result will be, too.

04:10

We're going to

04:14

If if that is not the case, were again starting with. If so, we're going to copy all off this

04:21

because it's going to stay the same.

04:26

So

04:28

if large and then just now the position is going to be six.

04:32

And if that's the case, is going to be number three

04:39

and then again if

04:43

and is going to be five.

04:46

I'm sorry, four.

04:48

Then again if

04:51

and it's going to be six

04:56

three

04:58

and again if

05:01

and it's going to be

05:04

seven and two

05:08

and now no more ifs, because if it's not 1234567 57 position,

05:16

then it's going to be sorry we made a mistake and typing. So it's 123

05:23

four

05:26

and we have those. We were here eight and it's 17 It's too

05:31

sixes, 35 is four, and then here he should have Bean four and five

05:41

on. Then it should be

05:46

three.

05:50

And it should be like this and to

05:57

no, sorry if it's going to be four and then five.

06:01

Yeah, 2345

06:06

So

06:08

it's going to be six

06:11

and then

06:13

the last one.

06:15

So

06:17

if it's going to be

06:20

two,

06:23

then it's going to be seven and then Indy and eight. So you see, this is complicated. You can make a mistake typing this, so you should put it on paper first.

06:32

Before you,

06:36

It's now we just close up all the brackets and it's very nice that Excel will give us

06:42

color coding off these brackets. So we finished with the black one and re presenter, and now we got

06:49

ranking of this one

06:51

just expanded here, and we got here and to know that were correct to to check If we're correct, we'll get 12345678 So all of them will be there.

07:04

And now we're going to just copy this for

07:10

this one. It's not just not going to be 3 to 10

07:15

it's going to be 11 2

07:20

18

07:26

and we're going to select this

07:30

and just compete all over

07:33

everything, Gale sustained. Same.

07:43

You hear? A swell.

07:46

You're a swell

07:50

hand

07:51

here. A swell.

07:54

So just to check every 11 18 all the way through.

08:01

So where is the stake?

08:05

Yep.

08:09

So

08:11

this is it.

08:13

And then we're going to expand this for all these eight. Again. We have 12345678

08:20

And then Ridge is going to copy this

08:24

and corrected. So it's now going to be 19

08:30

two,

08:31

26

08:33

and we just have to do some copying.

08:37

So,

08:39

second,

08:41

third

08:46

sport,

08:48

if

08:50

six

08:52

and seven occurrence of this

08:56

presenter,

08:58

we expand this. And now we got rankings for each race.

09:03

So let's continue in next video.
