```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.

. list temp time mf

+---------------------+
| temp   time      mf |
|---------------------|
1. |   26      1     5.5 |
2. |   26      2    8.64 |
3. |   26      3   12.03 |
4. |   35      1    8.64 |
