Saludos,

Can someone please explained to me what exactly a "percentile" is? I just finished reading two different definitions of it but they are confusing. Could you please give me some examples as well and how it differs from percent?

Thank You,
Edher
 
  • percentile means one of the 100 equal groups that a larger group of people can be divided into, e.g. Overall these students rank in the 21st percentile on the tests - that is, they did worse than 79 per cent of all children taking the test. Hope that helps :)
    Regards,
