Solution

Construct the following table:

Commodity Base
Year
Current
Year
p0q0 p1q0 p0q1 p1q1
p0 q0 p1 q1
I 10 9 50 8 90 450 80 400
II 20 5 60 4 100 300 80 240
III 30 7 70 3 210 490 90 210
IV 40 8 80 2 320 640 80 160
Total 720 1880 330 1010

From the table, `sum"p"_0"q"_0` = 720, `sum"p"_1"q"_0` = 1880, `sum"p"_0"q"_1` = 330, `sum"p"_1"q"_1` = 1010

a) Laspeyre’s Price Index Number:

P01(L) = `(sum"p"_1"q"_0)/(sum"p"_0"q"_0) xx 100`

= `1880/720 xx 100`

= 261.11

b) Paasche’s Price Index Number:

P01(P) = `(sum"p"_1"q"_1)/(sum"p"_0"q"_1) xx 100`

= `1010/330 xx 100`

= 306.6

c) Drobish-Bowley’s Price Index Number:

P01(D-B) = `("P"_01("L") + "P"_01("P"))/2`

= `(261.11 + 306.06)/2`

= `567.17/2`

= 283.59

Solution:

Commodity Base Year Current Year p1q0 p0q0 p1q1 p0q1
  p0 q0 p1 q1
I 8 30 12 25 360 240 300 200
II 10 42 20 16 840 420 320 160
Total         `bb(sump_1q_0=1200)` `bb(sump_0q_0=660)` `bb(sump_1q_1=620)` `bb(sump_0q_1=360)`

Laspeyre's Price Index Number:

P01(L) = `(sum"p"_1"q"_0)/(sum"p"_0"q"_0) xx 100 = square/660xx100`

∴ P01(L) = `square`

Paasche 's Price Index Number:

P01(P) = `(sum"p"_1"q"_1)/(sum"p"_0"q"_1) xx 100=(620)/(square) xx 100`

∴ P01(P) = `square`
