That will return the last 3 records in your database where the highest
number is the last. Think of it as sorting by that number in reverse and
only returning the first 3.

Subject: [PHP-DB] Checking if number is in bottom three?
I need a way to check if a number is in the bottom three of a column in my database. For example, if I had a list of number in my table like this:
I might need to know if 5 was in the bottom three, which it would be. But if I checked 60, it wouldn't be. I could check the lowest number and add 3 to it, but it may have gaps. Any ideas?
