Can someone explain the basic statistical concept of the 'percentile'? It's come up in this investigation we're doing and is assumed as previous knowledge. I have no idea where to go on it.

It's due tomorrow. I can go into the specifics of the question if that helps.

Thanks.

If I had a list of student's scores, which I do, and I wanted to find a score for a hypothetical student x, how do I go about ranking the scores?
Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either, just fuck off and leave me alone.

And then attach a percentile rank to each one?
Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either, just fuck off and leave me alone.

a percentile is a numeric portion

for instance,

96% of guys are ****heads.
