## What percentile is z-score of 2?

Remember, when finding a percentile rank, the area under the normal curve becomes ranked (from 1 to 100 percentiles). For instance, we know that a Z-score of +2 represents 2 standard deviations above the mean. This same location, when converted to a percentile would be the 98th percentile.

### What is the z-score of 55th percentile?

For d., using the percentile table, the corresponding z score for the 55th percentile is 0.13. For e., using the percentile table, the corresponding z score for the 75th percentile is 0.67. A normal distribution has a mean of 250 and a standard deviation of 45.

#### How do you find a percentile?

Percentiles can be calculated using the formula n = (P/100) x N, where P = percentile, N = number of values in a data set (sorted from smallest to largest), and n = ordinal rank of a given value. Percentiles are frequently used to understand test scores and biometric measurements.

**What is the percentile for 86?**

**How do you find Z score from a percentage?**

How do we find such (z^*)? The idea is to a percentile to z score conversion table, which is essentially using a standard normal distribution table. This can also be achieved by using Excel. If conversely what you have is a z-score, you can use our z-score to percentile calculator .

### What Z score represents the 80th percentile?

The question doesn’t state whether she wants at least the top 30% or at max the top 30%, but the former seems reasonable. Choosing 0.53 as the z-value, would mean we ‘only’ test 29.81% of the students. I would have assumed it would make more sense to choose z=0.52 for that reason, so that we at least cover 30%.

#### How do you convert a z score into a percentage?
