#### Syntax

PERCENTILE.EXC(array,k)

#### Arguments

This function has these arguments:

Argument Description
array Array of values representing the data
k Value representing the percentile value between 0 and 1

#### Remarks

This function returns the #NUM! error value if the array is empty. If k is nonnumeric, #VALUE! is returned. If k = 0 or 1, #NUM! is returned. The function interpolates to determine the value at the kth percentile if k is not a multiple of 1/(n-1). The function interpolates when the value for the specified percentile is between two values in the array. If the function cannot interpolate for the percentile, #NUM! is returned.

Accepts numeric data for both arguments. Returns numeric data.

#### Examples
