# Example of decile: X Below Above N/10 ( Above)

## 9N/ 10( below) 49 10 1 10

D9 = 9N / 10 score + N/ 10 score

Percentile

Is another point measure in s scale where the distribution is divided into one hundred
equal parts.

## Step 1. Arrange the score from highest to lowest.

Step 2. Marked 1 for the lowest score ; 2, from the second lowest score and so on till the
highest score and write this column below.

Step 3. Marked 1 from the highest and so on till the lowest score and write this column above.

Step 4.Find 75N / 100 from below and the score falls within this value. For instances the
number of cases is 13 . The value falls on 9.75. Find the score falls on 9.75 from below.

Step 5. Look for the value of 25N/ 100 from above and the score falls this value. The value of
25N/ 100 with 13 number of cases (N) is 3.25. take not that values of 75N/ 100 from below and
25N/ 100 from above is 3.25. the total is 13.

Step 6. If the number of cases is odd, get the middlemost score between below and above. If
the number of cases (N) IS EVEN , add the score of step4 and 5 divided by 2 equals the seventh-
fifth percentile value.
