    Percentile rank of 14 is (9/15)(100) = 60 or 60th percentile

    @pinkbubbles why 9/15? 12/20 is more intuitive (I acknowledge it is the same number...)

    \[\frac{ number of scores below x }{ n }\times100 = percentile rank\] So x is 6 andnumber of scores below 6 is 7

    so 7(6)/n(100)=percentile rank

    \[\frac{ 7 }{ 6 }\times100=? \]
