Calculating Class Rank Percentage?

Hey everyone, I'm a bit confused on how to calculate the percentage of my class rank. Can someone explain the process to me? Thanks in advance!

Hey there! Calculating your class rank percentage is quite simple. It's just a matter of comparing your rank to the total number of students in your graduating class. Here's the formula you need to use:

Class Rank Percentage = (Your Class Rank / Total Class Size) x 100

For example, let's say your class rank is 15 out of 200 students. To calculate your class rank percentage, you would divide 15 by 200 and then multiply the result by 100.

Class Rank Percentage = (15 / 200) x 100 = 0.075 x 100 = 7.5%

In this example, your class rank percentage would be 7.5%. This means you're in the top 7.5% of your class. Keep in mind that a lower percentage indicates a higher ranking – so a student ranked 1 out of 200 would have a percentage of 0.5%.

I hope that helps! If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.
