The PERCENTRANK function is one of the statistical functions. It is used to return the rank of a value in a set of values as a percentage of the set.
The PERCENTRANK function syntax is:
PERCENTRANK(array, x[, significance])
array is the selected range of cells containing the numeric values.
x is the value you want to find the rank for, a numeric value entered manually or included into the cell you make reference to.
