Solution

Construct the following table:

Commodity Base
Year
Current
Year
`sqrt("q"_1"q"_1)` `"p"_0sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)` `"p"_1 sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)`
p0 q0 p1 q1
I 10 12 40 3 6 60 240
II 20 2 25 8 4 80 100
III 30 3 50 27 9 270 450
IV 60 9 90 36 18 1080 1620
Total 1490 2410

From the table, `sum"p"_0 sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)` = 1490, `sum"p"_1sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)` = 2410

Walsh’s Price Index Number:

P01(W) = `(sum"p"_1sqrt("q"_0"q"_1))/(sum"p"_0sqrt("q"_0"q"_1)) xx 100`

= `2410/1490 xx 100`

= 161.74
