Graduating seniors may earn $45000 each year.  If the annual rate of inflation is 2 percent, what must these graduates earn after 20 years to maintain their current purchasing power?  If the rate of inflation rises to 4 percent, will they be maintaining their standard of living if they earn $100000 after 20 years?

If inflation rate compounds , it explodes. It must be average rate.
