1. ## Percentile

I've just a quick question about percentiles that's been bothering me.

Just say, for example, that I took some test, and I got in the 95th or whatever percentile. Are there the same number of people in the 95th percentile as there are in, just say, the 63rd percentile?

Basically, does each percentile contain the same number of people? I know the range or whatever may be different. Or, does each percentile contain a different number of people depending on the standard deviation etc.?

Thanks.

Please post the definition of percentile. (You will probably see the answer to your question then ....)
