Inflation can seem complex but it is a very simple benchmark that allows us to compare the relative costs of a service or goods over time.

Calculating inflation requires two simple figures:

- a: The current cost of a product/service
- b: The previous cost of a product/service

Using the two figures above for the product/service defined, inflation is calculated using the formula below.

Inflation Rate (%) = ( (b - a) / a) x 100

Inflation Rate calculations for specific countries encompass many products and services but the inflation rate formula remains the same.
