Hello All , i'm stucked in C# , to get the percentile from array of column values .please check the below code and let me know how can i pass the arguments to the method .

Hide Copy Code
public double Percentile(double[] sequence, double excelPercentile)
            int N = sequence.Length;
            double n = (N - 1) * excelPercentile + 1;
            // Another method: double n = (N + 1) * excelPercentile;
            if (n == 1d) return sequence[0];
            else if (n == N) return sequence[N - 1];
                int k = (int)n;
                double d = n - k;
                return sequence[k - 1] + d * (sequence[k] - sequence[k - 1]);

and i have the array of data - and also k value as 0.95.
percentile(myarray , K);
the above method sending me error . please let me know , what is my mistake.

What I have tried:

When i call the method

percentile(myarray , K);
i have doubt here at calling the method

The error "An object reference is required for the non-static field, method, or property" is well documented. Check this: Compiler Error CS0120[^]
