I have put a piece of data below. 
I need to find what percent of people have maximum
value in the variable rf at time 1 and temp 26, what
percent of people will have maximum value of mf at
time 2 and temp 26, what percent of people have max
value of mf at time 3 and temp 26 and similarly for
tmep 35oC. 

Thanks in advance for your help & support
