- To determine the .10-quantile of
*Z*, we construct the CDF Φ of*Z*. Formally, we do so by integrating its PF ϕ, which is given by [3.13]. However, since ϕ is so simple, Φ is easily obtained by inspection:[s30]

A .10-quantile is any value

*z*for which:[s31]

This equation has the single solution

*z*= 1.2. - A .875-quantile is any value
*z*for which:[s32]

This equation has the single solution z = 2.75.
