    Cpi

    Does anyone know how to calculate the CPI for this year and for 5 years from now. I can use a Hershey bar @ todays cost of $0.70.



    This math is getting stressful

    PLEASE!!!

    Take the CPI for today to be 100, let the price 5 years hence be x then the
    CPI 5 years hence is (x/0.70)*100.

    Index=(price at time of interest)/(price at base year)*100

    (BTW in the UK we use the price of Mars bars as a tracker of CPI)
