## How to sum largest or smallest 3 values in a list of Excel?

It is common for us to add up a range of numbers by using the SUM function, but sometimes, we need to sum the largest or smallest 3, 10 or n numbers in a range, this may be a complicated task. Today I introduce you some formulas to solve this problem.

Sum the largest / smallest 3 values in a range with formulas

#### Sum the largest / smallest 3 values in a range with formulas

Supposing you have the following range of data need to sum the largest or smallest 3 values.

Here I can talk about some formulas for you:

1. LARGE function:

You need the LARGE formula three times and then sums the results when you want to sum the top 3 values, do as this:

Enter this LARGE formula into a blank cell =LARGE(A1:D10,1)+ LARGE(A1:D10,2)+ LARGE(A1:D10,3), see screenshot:

And then press Enter key, you will get the result.

Notes:

(1.) If you want to sum the largest 5 values, you need to use it 5 time as this: =LARGE(A1:D10,1)+LARGE(A1:D10,2)+LARGE(A1:D10,3)+LARGE(A1:D10,4)+ LARGE(A1:D10,5) ,you can expand this formula as you need.

(2.) Use the following SMALL function, you can get the result of the smallest 3 values: =SMALL(A1:D10,1)+SMALL(A1:D10,2)+ SMALL(A1:D10,3).

2. Array formulas:

You can also use the following array formulas:

Enter this formula into a blank cell, =SUM(LARGE(A1:D10,{1,2,3})), and then press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys to get your result .

This formula will become unwieldy as n gets larger. For example, to sum the top 20 values in a range, a formula must contain a list of integers from 1 to 20. Here is a quicker and more convenient array formula: =SUM(LARGE(A1:D10,ROW(INDIRECT ("1:20")))).

After enter this formula, remember to press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys. If you need to sum a different quantity of numbers, just change the 20 to the desired number.

Note: You can also add up the smallest 3 values with these array formulas as above steps:

=SUM(SMALL(A1:D10,{1,2,3}))

=SUM(SMALL(A1:D10,ROW(INDIRECT ("1:3"))))
