Step 1

1 of 3Recall that we can have the CPI ratio as:

$\begin{aligned} \text{2016 CPI Ratio}&=\frac{\text{2016 CPI}}{\text{Reference CPI}} \end{aligned}$

with 2016 CPI equal to 240, and 1996 CPI equal to 156.9 as reference value, we can have the ratio as:

$\begin{aligned} \text{2016 CPI Ratio}&=\frac{\text{2016 CPI}}{\text{Reference CPI}}\\ &=\frac{240}{156.9}\\ &=1.5296 \end{aligned}$

The 2016 CPI ratio is 1.5296.
