"Exact" class ranking on Common App?

What is "Exact" class ranking on Common App? All the other ones have to deal with like top fifth or which tenth are you in, but my school gives a percentile. I'd like to say I'm in the 98th percentile at my school, but I don't know how. Also, my school does not give precise "you are the fifth or the eighth highest ranked" information, only the percentile. 98/395 sounds very different from 98th percentile. Should I just put 1st decile? It's a big deal to me because it shortens the pool from 39 or so students that way to about the top four. I've worked hard to be in that top four, please help (by answering the first question as specifically as you can)!!
