## How to calculate inflation rate for zł100, 1990 to 1992

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1990 and 1992:

CPI in 1992 CPI in 1990
×
1990 PLN value
=
1992 PLN value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The Polish CPI was 6.458814 in the year 1990 and 16.68039 in 1992:

16.680396.458814
×
zł100
=
zł258.26

zł100 in 1990 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as zł258.26 in 1992.

To get the total inflation rate for the 2 years between 1990 and 1992, we use the following formula:

CPI in 1992 - CPI in 1990CPI in 1990
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (2 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

16.68039 - 6.4588146.458814
×
100
=
158%
