    Finding percent values in data

    Hi there. I am about to give up! I couldn't make class today and I am certain we covered this. It's a new term and I don't know anyone yet (week 2). I've been doing stats all day and my brain is fizzled. Here is the question that is dismaying me. I need to know how to find the answer and if it is better to attempt in Excel, minitab, or on my TI-83.

    Suppose that the value 37 in a data set is the 95th percentile. What percent of values in the data set are greater than 37?

    I'm not sure what the other values in the data set would be, do I guess or assume? That seems unlikely.

    It seems obvious to figure but I'm really not sure at this point. This is due tomorrow and mathlab is closed! (But I am enjoying learning this stuff! It makes sense once I make sense of it!)

    Thanks in advance!

    Okay, I gave up, walked away and had a drink of water and cool air. Came back and figured it out. I failed to notice I had a set of data values to work from. I feel dumb and smart! Delete post if need be...
