In this paper we study the relationship between the number of replications and the accuracy of the estimated quantiles of a distribution obtained by simulation. A method for testing hypotheses on the quantiles of a theoretical distribution using the simulated distribution is proposed, as well as a method to check the hypothesis of consistency of a test.
