Percentile Formula:


 


PR = $\frac{B + ( 0.5 * S)}{N}$ * 100


 


Where,


B = Number of below rank,
S = Number of same rank,
N = Total Numbers.



Step 2 :  

Plug in the values in a formula and find the percentile rank.

  1. In an exam, jimmy and sam both got 5th rank out of 10 ranks. Find out the percentile rank. 


    Step 1 :  

    Given,


     


    PR = $\frac{B + ( 0.5 * S)}{N}$ * 100


     


    Where,


    B = 4,
    S = 2,
    N = 11.



    Step 2 :  

    Plug in the values in a formula and find the percentile rank.


     


    PR = $\frac{4 + ( 0.5 * 2)}{11}$ * 100


    PR = $\frac{4 + (1)}{11}$ * 100


    PR = $\frac{5}{11}$ * 100


    PR = 0.454545455 * 100



    Answer  :  

    45.4545



  2. In a car race, peter placed at 2nd position among first three position. Find the percentile rank.


    Step 1 :  

    Given,


     


    PR = $\frac{B + ( 0.5 * S)}{N}$ * 100


     


    Where,


    B = 1,
    S = 1,
    N = 3.



    Step 2 :  

    Plug in the values in a formula and find the percentile rank.


     


    PR = $\frac{1 + ( 0.5 * 1)}{3}$ * 100


    PR = $\frac{1 + 0.5}{3}$ * 100


    PR = $\frac{1.5}{3}$ * 100


    PR = 0.5 * 100
