## Weighted quantiles

### Description

Computes the weighted quantiles of a distribution.

### Usage

```
weighted.quantile(x, weights = NULL, probs = seq(0, 1, 0.25),
na.rm = FALSE, names = FALSE)
```

### Arguments

`x` |
numeric vector whose sample quantiles are wanted |

`weights` |
numeric vector of weights. If NULL (default), uniform weights (i.e. all equal to 1) are used. |

`probs` |
numeric vector of probabilities with values in [0,1] |

`na.rm` |
logical, indicating whether NA values should be silently removed before the computation proceeds. Default is FALSE. |

`names` |
logical. if TRUE, the result has a names attribute. Default is FALSE. |

### Value

A numeric vector of the same length as `probs`

argument.
