## How to Calculate Inflation Rate for \$1, 1674 to 1675

Our calculations use the following inflation rate formula to calculate the change in value between 1674 and 1675:

CPI in 1674 CPI in 1675
×
1675 USD value
=
1674 USD value

Then plug in historical CPI values. The U.S. CPI was 3.6 in the year 1675 and 4.1 in 1674:

4.13.6
×
\$1
=
\$1.14

\$1 in 1675 has the same "purchasing power" or "buying power" as \$1.14 in 1674.

To get the total inflation rate for the 1 years between 1674 and 1675, we use the following formula:

CPI in 1674 - CPI in 1675CPI in 1675
×
100
=
Cumulative inflation rate (1 years)

Plugging in the values to this equation, we get:

4.1 - 3.63.6
×
100
=
14%
