In a local marathon, Bob finished 60th out of 400 participants. What is his percentile ranking for this race?

    60/400 = 0.15
    0.15*100 = 15%

    Percentile is not the same as percent. How will you use the percent to determine percentile?

  • statistics -

    400-60=340
    340/400= 85th percentile?

  • statistics -

    Yes.
