How to calculate the inflation rate since 2010

Start with the CPI inflation formula:

CPI in 2017 / CPI in 2010 * 2010 USD value = 2017 USD value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.S. CPI was 218.056 in the year 2010 and 244.524 in 2017:

244.524 / 218.056 * $100 = $112.14

The "purchasing power" of $100 from 2010 is $112.14 in 2017.
