I see. I entered =(A1:C2 = MAX(A1:C2)) in a separate cell and it

value in my original table.
It's Boolean expression, giving the result TRUE or FALSE. It's testing
the individual cells in the range A1:C2 to determine whether they are
equal to the maximum value of that range. It may seem strange to be
able to write such an expression for an entire range instead of for
individual cells, but that is the power of array formulae.
=ROW(A1:C2) generates a one column table with numbered rows.
Now, the whole first argument of the ADDRESS function is
=(MAX((A1:C2=MAX(A1:C2))*ROW(A1:C2))), which looks like "multiplying" a
table by another table. What does it really mean? does it kind of
superimpose the two tables and return the highest value? does it
multiply the highest value from table 1 with the highest from table 2?
or what does it exactly do?
