Example: *The index of the base year= *The index of the year 1= *The index of the year 2= In order to compute the adjusted value we divide the nominal value by the price index of the year multiply by 100. For example: We get the adjusted value of the year one as follows: Year Prices Index Quantity Nominal Value Adjusted Value 1 120 80 150 18000 22500 2 150 100 200 30000 30000 Base Year 3 200 133 225
