    I got 79.75 as the answer for 90th percentile. I have the problem working out percentiles and need the formula to work out this I am now looking at the 40th percentile for the same question.

    a have a ztable that starts at z=0; percentile = 50 since the z is mirrored along a normal curve, percentile of 40 is the negavite of 60 z60 = 0.25 ; z40 = -0.25

    -.16 is equal to .16, -50 so about 6.4%
