"RealGDP=Nominal GDP\/Deflator"

"Real GDP(1992)=\\$6244\/100.0*100=\\$6244"

"Real GDP(1993)=\\$6553\/102.6*100=\\$6387"

"Rate=(Final-Initial)\/Initial"

"Rate (RealGDP)=(\\$6387-\\$6244)\/\\$6244*100=2.2" %

"Rate (NominalGDP)=(\\$6553-\\$6244)\/\\$6244*100=4.9" %

Rate of inflation for 1993 was 2.6%
