# BinFixed

The **BinFixed** function computes the bin for a value among the specified number of identically sized bins within the given bounds.

## Syntax

BinFixed(value, min, max, bins)

Function arguments:

**value**(required): The value for which the bin is computed.**min**(required): The lower bound. If the value is less than min, the bin will be 0.**max**(required): If the value is greater than or equal to max, the bin will be bins + 1.**bins**(required): The number of bins within the interval. Bins are numbered 1 through bins. If bins is less than 1, all values will treated as belonging to bin 1.

Example

The values in the *Days Since Signup* column are assigned in one of the 5 bins.

BinFixed([Days Since Signup], 0, 90, 3)

All numbers less than 0 will be in bin 0. All numbers 90 or greater will be in bin 4. All numbers between 0 and 90 will be assigned one of 3 equally sized bins.

This further helps simplify the duration since the last signup.
