In the first percentile example isn't the 20th percentile nearer 33 rather than 28? The range between 24 and 59 is 35. Consequently the bin is 0.35 wide. Twenty bins give 7. 24+7=31. Am I correct?

Measuring Position: Quartiles, Percentiles, Standardized Scores

  • To find the quartiles, sort the data from lowest to highest.

  • The methods to find the percentiles are actually approximate percentiles.

  • Standardized scores, also known as z-scores, are used to compare observations from two or more distributions.
