Jesse was ranked $37th$ in his graduating class of $180$ students. At what percentile is Jesse’s ranking?

Jesse's ranking is at ${80}^{th}$ percentile.

The formula for calculating percentile is:

$\frac{x+0.5y}{n}\left(100\right)$

Here,

x is number of data values counting from the bottom of the data

y is number of data values which are same

n is total number of data values.

The rank $37$ was only given to Jesse, it means that $x=143,y=1$

$=\frac{143+0.5\left(1\right)}{180}\left(100\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=80$
