### Overall Sudoku Game Statistics

### What is the meaning of "Median" or "Percentil"?

A median solution time (or the 50

^{th }percentil) time of e.g. 10 minutes indicates that

- 50% of all solved Sudokus have been solved in less than or equal to 10 minutes
- or in other words, 50% of all solved Sudokus have been solved in a time longer than 10 minutes

Now you understand the meaning of the 30

^{th} percentil:
A solution time of e.g. 4.5 minutes for the 30

^{th} percentile indicates that

- 30% of all solved Sudokus have been solved in less than or equal to 4.5 minutes
- or in other words, 70% of all solved Sudokus have been solved in a time longer than 4.5 minutes

With this understanding you can compare your results with the overall performance - but be careful with a hasty conclusion.

Prerequisite for a comparision is the need for a good statistical basis and that is the availability of a huge amount of Sudokus solved by many different players !

That is not yet achieved at the time being (January 2012).
