This function allows you to calculate the N-th highest number of a vector. In other words, it is the N-th max; it calculates the maximum after removing (n-1) higher numbers (maxes). Note that k=1 yields the traditional global maximum.

1 | ```
nth_highest(x, k = 1)
``` |

`x` |
Data vector. |

`k` |
The N-th highest value or N-th max. For example, k=2 yields the second highest value. Note that k=1 gives the highest value aka the global max. Defaults to 1. |
