 REMARKS
 * PERCENTILE.INC was added in Excel 2010 to replace this function.* For an illustrated example refer to the page under Advanced Functions* If "array" contains more than 8,191 data points, then #NUM! is returned.* If "array" is empty, then #NUM! is returned.* If "k" < 0, then #NUM! is returned.* If "k" > 1, then #NUM! is returned.* If "k" is not numeric, then #VALUE! is returned.* If "k" is not a multiple of 1/(n - 1), then this function interpolates to determine the value at the kth percentile.* You can use the PERCENTILE.EXC function to return the number corresponding to a particular percentage from an array of numbers (exclusive).* You can use the PERCENTRANK.INC function to return the rank of a value as a percentage (inclusive).* You can use the QUARTILE.INC function to return the fixed percentiles of 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100 (inclusive).* For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com* For the Google documentation refer to support.google.com
