- Percentile[<List of Numbers>, <Percent>]
- Let P equal the given
*Percent*. - Returns the value that cuts off the first P percent of the number list when the list is sorted in ascending order.
*Percent*must be a number in the interval 0 < P ≤ 1.

**Note:**The commands Quartile and Percentile use different rules and do not always return matching results. For example,

- Q1[ {1,2,3,4} ] = 1.5
- Percentile[ {1,2,3,4}, .25 ] = 1
