The formula that is most often used is:

P = (c + 0.5r) / N x 100

c : count of scores that are *lower*

r : number of scores that have the same value as the score of interest

N : total number of scores

37:

c : lower scores (5)

r : repeated (1)

N : total scores (23)

= (5 + 1*0.5)/23 * 100

= 5.5/23 * 100

≈ 23.9

24th percentile

47:

c : lower scores (8)

r : repeated (2)

N : total scores (23)

= (8 + 2*0.5) / 23 * 100

= 9/23 * 100

≈ 39.1

39th percentile

63:

c : lower scores (15)

r : repeated (1)

N : total scores (23)

= (15 + 1*0.5) / 23 * 100

= 15.5 / 23 * 100

≈ 67.4

67th percentile

There are 23 data points.

37 is the 6th data point, so it is the:

6/23 = 0.2609

26th percentile
