## Algebra 1

You have to find out what percent of test scores were less than or equal to 85. They were 12 scores that were less than or equal to 85. They were 30 test scores. So using this information we write a ratio, 12:30.We divide to get a percent: $\frac{12}{30}$=0.4.To change into a percent you move the decimal 2 times to the right to get 40%. So the percentile rank of a test score of 85 or less is 40
