Frank's nominal income in 1998 is $45,000. Suppose the CPI in 1998 is 150. What is Frank's real income?

a. $51,750

b. $45,000

c. $38,250

d. $30,000

can you show me the calculations

real income in what year's dollars.

Real income in the base year of the cpi would be 45000/1.5=30000.

Real income in 1998 dollars is simply 45000.
