Add up all the values for annual inflation rate as ann. inf. rate in the third column to get the simple average for the annual inflation rate.
(5.21%+3.53%+1.68%+1.01%+1.17%+1.85%+1.59%+1.34%+1.37%+2.22%+2.60%+2.38%+2.52%+2.32%+2.02%+2.08%+2.08%+2.27%+1.30%+1.05%+2.38%+2.21%+1.20%)/23≈2.06%

ii) Compounded inflation rate between 1990 to 2013, the formula would take the form: ((CPI(2013)/CPI(1990)^1/23-1)*100, therefore, ((122.8/78.4)**(1/23)-1)*100≈1.97%

e) i) The formula is CPI(2013)=CPI(1990)*(1+0.05)**23
CPI(2013)=78.4*1.05**23≈240.81

ii) The formula is
