I would like to express the following as an equation, but don't know the nomenclature.

'The point at which a condition is true 95% of the time'

ie. I have a function, f(x) which returns some value in the presence of random and uncharicterizable noise. I run this 1000 times. I find the condition f(x)>10 is true 50% of the time. I adjust f(x), and rerun 1000 times and find f(x)>10 is true 80%. I keep rejecting f(x) until I reach the point where f(x)>10 for 95% of samples.

Basically I want something like (f(x) [itex]\stackrel{95\%}{>}[/itex]10)

_{1000}

but there is bound to be a correct way to do this

Thanks
