Let's say we're given a response with some service station information that looks like this:

{"data": {"local_service_ratings": {"cheapest": 4,"nearest": 6,"regional": [4,5,6,8,9]}}}

If we want to find highest rated service stations, use the following function.

# Find highest ratedMAX(data.local_service_ratings.cheapest,data.local_service_ratings.nearest)â€‹# Returns 6

`MAX`

can also take arrays as arguments, as shown in the following function.

# Find the largest regional service stationMAX(data.local_service_ratings.cheapest,data.local_service_ratings.nearest,data.local_service_ratings.regional)â€‹# Returns 9
