For a complete definition of Percentile see the related link. A percentile is the value of a variable below which a certain percent of observations fall

The 90th percentile is typically the point at which 10 percent of the highest scores fall.

If you assume that scores are out of 40, and that they are evenly distributed (an unlikely event in real life), then the 90th percentile is all scores above 36.

6'1 1/2" is the 90th.

0.90 x 8 = 7.2 0.90 = 90/100 (90th percentile) 8 = 8 samples 7.2 has to be rounded to the nearest even no...ie. 8 so the 8th result is the 90th percentile value

It is 1.28

ca. 9 % has an higher IQ.... (IQ 119 90th percentile equals top 10%)

90th percentile is simple another way of saying that 9% scored above and 90% scored below (the other 1% being the number 90). For example, if you take a type of standardized test in high school, if you do well, you are at the 90th percentile, meaning 90% of students scored lower than you and 9% scored better. You can not be in the 100% percentile, because you cannot score better than yourself.

Raw scores in the 70s or 80s correspond to the 90th or 95th percentile.

It means that the value of the observation is in the highest ten percent. Whether that is good or bad depends on the context.

being in the 40 percentile means that 40 percent of the population is the same as you are in this particular factor. This means that 60 percent of the population is different.

Yes. It is a very good score for a seventh grade and is approximately equivalent to the 90th percentile for a sophomore.
