Enter the initial price ($) and the rate of inflation over the period (%) into the Inflated Price Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Inflated Price. 

Inflated Price Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Inflated Price. 

P = Pi + Pi *r/100
  • Where P is the Inflated Price ($)
  • Pi is the initial price ($) 
  • r is the rate of inflation over the period (%) 

To calculate the inflated price, multiply the initial price by the inflation rate, then add the result to the initial price.

How to Calculate Inflated Price?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Inflated Price.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the initial price ($).
    1. The initial price ($) is given as: 600.
  2. Next, determine the rate of inflation over the period (%).
    1. The rate of inflation over the period (%) is provided as: 10.
  3. Finally, calculate the Inflated Price using the equation above: 

P = Pi + Pi *r/100

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

P = 600 + 600 *10/100 = 660.00 ($)


Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables needed are provided below:

initial price ($) = 1550

rate of inflation over the period (%) = 5

This example problem is a test of your knowledge on the subject. Use the calculator above to check your answer. 

P = Pi + Pi *r/100 = ?
