How to calculate inflation between 2000 and 2016

Start with the CPI inflation formula:

CPI in 2016 / CPI in 2000 * 2000 USD value = 2016 USD value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.S. CPI was 172.2 in the year 2000 and 240.007 in 2016:

240.007 / 172.2 * $100 = $139.38

The "purchasing power" of $100 from 2000 is $139.38 in 2016.
