Percentile Sort

  1. Dec 20, 2007 #1

    Is there a well known method (algorithm, process, etc.) by which objects are sorted into percentile groups based on some aspect of the object such as weight or size?

    I would imagine there is, but I have never seen one personally. I have always seen these things in charts.

    Do you mean some algorithm you could put in code or are you just looking for a tool? Excel will do it.
