Rachael is applying for a scholarship currently valued at $ 5000. If she is awarded it at the end of next year, how much is the scholarship worth in today’s dollars, assuming inflation of 3 percent?

The purchasing power at the end of next year will be 3% less than now because of inflation

3% of $5000 = 3/100 x  $5000 = $150

Hence scholarship is worth $5000 - $150 =  $4850  in today’s dollars
