Imagine that the annual inflation is 20%. If one kg of ema costs Nu 100, the next year the price inflates to Nu 120. And the next year? 20% on top of Nu 120, which is Nu 144. The total inflation in two years was 44%, not 40%.
If you do the math right, you'll end up with a 5-year cumulative inflation of 46.1%, not 39.5%.
Other figures in the story are also misleading. Hopefully the paper will publish a revised article with the correct numbers.
