On page 419 of the latest Prime user guide, it shows how to use the variance() function. This is the population variance. Is there a way to calculate the sample variance instead?
Also, I can't find a built-in function for percentile. I could probably write something easily enough, but I'm wondering if I'm missing it somewhere...

From p194 of the manual:
Tapping [Stats] displays the following results for each
dataset selected in Symbolic view.
sX Sample standard deviation
sigmaX Population standard deviation
Then obtain the sample variance as the square of sX
