% Change in M + % Change in V = % Change in P + % Change in Y.

i.e, % Change in P = % Change in M + % Change in V – % Change in Y.

% Change in P = 14% + 0% – 5% = 9%.

% Change in P is the inflation rate π. From the Fisher equation, we have

i = r + π,

i is the nominal interest rate and r is the real interest rate. i is given as 11% in the problem, and we just calculated above that π is 9%. Hence, r is 2%
