Expert Answer

Step 1

(1)

The inflation rate can be estimated by using the following formula:

Inflation rate = (CPIn – CPIn-1) / CPIn

Where n = No. of years.

Assume year 2010 as the base year for 2011 and the value of year 2010 as 100.

Hence, the above table can be written as follows:

Inflation rate Years CPI 247.71 2011 14771% 2012 252.58 0.01967% 256.83 2013 0.01682% 2014 260.23 0.01323% 2015 260.55 0.00123%

Step 2

Working notes:

Inflation rate (2011) = (247.71 -100) / 100 = 1.4771%

Inflation rate (2012) = (252.58 – 247.71) / 247.71 = 0.01967%

Inflation rate (2013) = (256.83 – 252.58) / 252.58 = 0.01682%

Inflation rate (2014) = (260.23 – 256.83) / 256.83 = 0.01323%

Inflation rate (2015) = (260.55 – 260.23) / 260.23 = 0.00123%

Step 3

(2)

We know that,

Real Income = (Nominal Income / CPI) * 100

Therefore,

Real Income (2011) = ($49,416 / 247.71) *100 = $19, 949.13

Real Income (2012) = ($50,895 / 252.58) *100 = $20, 150.05

Real Income (2013) = ($52,223 / 256.23) *100 = $20,...
