In this article, we will learn about how to use the PERCENTILE.EXC function in Excel.
The PERCENTILE.EXC is a statistical function. In statistics, finding a value below the given kth percentage or Percentile. Value of k can be shown in the below table.
|Value of k||Percentage||Percentile|
|0.1||10 %||10th percentile|
|0.2||20 %||20th percentile|
|0.3||30 %||30th percentile|
|0.4||40 %||40th percentile|
|0.5||50 %||50th percentile|
|0.6||60 %||60th percentile|
|0.7||70 %||70th percentile|
PERCENTILE.EXC function takes the range of values as array and value of k. And returns the interpolate value from the array.
k : number between 0 & 1 . Excluding 0 & 1 itself.
Let’s understand this function using it as an example.
Here we have a set of values as A1 : A46 and we need to find some PERCENTILE.EXC values from the array.
Use the formula:
A1 : A46 - array given as cell reference.
C2 - value of k given as cell reference.
The function returns the value for K = 0.1 or 10th PERCENTILE value which is 24.4 .
Now copy the formula to get different PERCENTILE.EXC values of the range to the remaining cells and formula as shown in the snapshot below.
As you can see the outcomes and the Formulas in the snapshot above.
Here are some of the observations gathered using the PERCENTILE.EXC function.
