The decile calculator with solution calculates the deciles (1^{st} to 10^{th}) of the entered data set it also calculates the minimum value, maximum value, mean, sum, and range of the given input.

In statistics, deciles are a measure of position that divides a dataset into 10 equal parts, each containing an equal number of observations.

Specifically, the k^{th} decile is the value below which k/10 of the observations in the dataset fall, and above which (10 - k) / 10 of the observations fall. It is quite similar to quartiles.

- The first decile (10th percentile) is the value below which 10% of the observations in the dataset fall
- The second decile (20th percentile) is the value below which 20% of the observations fall.
- The fifth decile (50th percentile) is the value below which 50% of the observations fall, which is also known as the median.

To calculate the decile of a data set we use the following decile formula:

- “K” is the number of deciles it can be between 1 to 10
- “n” is the number of terms

In this section, we’ll discuss the steps for calculating the deciles of any data set.

**Example 1: **

Calculate the deciles of the following data set:

2, 23, 4, 91, 5, 6, 3, 76, 83, 32

**Solution: **

**Step 1:** Arrange the data

Firstly we have to arrange the data in ascending order.

X = 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 23, 32, 76, 83, 91

**Step 2:** Calculate “n”.

Total number of terms = n = 10

**Step 3:** Calculation.

Calculate the deciles using the formula:

**K ^{th} decile = [{k * (n + 1)} / 10]^{th} data**

**For 1 ^{st} decile: **

K = 1

n = 10

K^{th} decile = [{k * (n + 1)} / 10]^{th} data

1^{st} decile = [{1 * (10 + 1)} / 10]^{th} data

1^{st} decile = [{1 * (11)} / 10]^{th} data

1^{st} decile = [11 / 10]^{th} data

1^{st} decile = [1.1]^{th} data

1^{st} decile = 1^{st} term + (0.1)^{ th} data

1^{st} decile = 2 + (0.1)^{ th} data

For “(0.1)^{th} data” subtract 1^{st} term from the 2^{nd} term, and then multiply it by “0.1”

1^{st} decile = 2 + {(2^{nd} term – 1^{st} term) * 0.1}

1^{st} decile = 2 + {(3 – 2) * 0.1}

1^{st} decile = 2 + {(1) * 0.1}

1^{st} decile = 2 + 0.1

1^{st} decile = 2.1

**For 2 ^{nd} decile: **

K = 2

n = 10

2^{nd} decile = [{2 * (10 + 1)} / 10]^{th} data

2^{nd} decile = [{2 * (11)} / 10]^{th} data

2^{nd} decile = [22 / 10]^{th} data

2^{nd} decile = [2.2]^{th} data

2^{nd} decile = 2^{nd} term + (0.2)^{ th} data

2^{nd} decile = 3 + (0.2)^{ th} data

For “(0.2)^{ th} data” subtract 2^{nd} term from the 3^{rd} term, and then multiply it by “0.2”

2^{nd} decile = 3 + {(3^{rd} term – 2^{nd} term) * 0.2}

2^{nd} decile = 3 + {(4 – 3) * 0.2}

2^{nd} decile = 3 + {(1) * 0.2}

2^{nd} decile = 3 + 0.2

For “(0.3)^{ th} data” subtract 3^{rd} term from the 4^{th} term, and then multiply it by “0.3”

3^{rd} decile = 4 + {(4^{th} term – 3^{rd} term) * 0.3}

3^{rd} decile = 4 + {(5 – 4) * 0.3}

3^{rd} decile = 4 + {(1) * 0.3}

5^{th} decile = 6 + {(23 – 6) * 0.5}

6^{th} decile = 23 + {(7^{th} term – 6^{th} term) * 0.6}

6^{th} decile = 23 + {(32 – 23) * 0.6}

6^{th} decile = 23 + {(9) * 0.6}
