I use COUNTIF for this. Set M and F in a column and count the next column using the M/F column as the selector

For male =Max(if(B:B="M",C:C))
For female =Max(if(B:B="F",C:C))

Formula should be entered using control shift enter

Also the example is given that gender is in column B and salary is in column C

You can change those range to actual range in your workbook

Assuming E3=M and E4=F and data is in the range A2:C5 then try this....
In F3
=MAX(INDEX(($B$2:$B$5=E3)*($C$2:$C$5),))

Open in new window

and copy down. No need to use Ctrl+Shift+Enter, Enter alone is sufficient as this is a regular formula.

Also you may use the Pivot Table to get the desired output.

Please refer to the attached for details.
