The Rune Index is made up of a weighted average of all of the current runes listed in the Market Watch, with the starting date of this average on 15 December 2007, at an index of 100. The overall rising and falling of rune prices is reflected in this index.
While specialised for just watching rune prices, it is set up and adjusted in a manner similar to the Common Trade Index , and the divisor may be adjusted to include new runes added by Jagex (see the FAQ for more information).
As of today, this index is 407.61 +0.11

Calculations
From the old divisor obtained from the templates:
$ {div}_{\text{old}} = 14.0000 $
We need to calculate a new divisor:
$ {div}_{\text{new}} = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} $
To calculate the new divisor, we need to find:
$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} \\ & = \frac{6}{11} + \frac{3}{10} + \frac{6}{15} + \dots + \frac{556}{335} \\ & = 8.93366198 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $
And also:
$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{sum of added ratios} \\ & = \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{number of added items} \\ & = 8.93366198 - 0 + 1 \\ & = 9.933661982 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $
Thus, the new divisor is:
$ \begin{align} {div}_{\text{new}} & = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} \\ & = 14.0000 \times \frac{9.93366198}{8.93366198} \\ & = 15.5671 \text{ (4 d.p.)} \end{align} $

Calculations

We need to calculate a new divisor:
$ {div}_{\text{new}} = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} $
To calculate the new divisor, we need to find:
$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} \\ & = \frac{19}{11} + \frac{6}{10} + \frac{26}{15} + \dots + \frac{153}{335} + \frac{389}{1,817} \\ & = 16.36670735 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $
And also:
$ \begin{align} \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}} & = \text{sum of ratios prior to change} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{sum of added ratios} \\ & = \sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}} - \text{sum of removed ratios} + \text{number of added items} \\ & = 16.36670735 - 0 + 6 \\ & = 22.36670735 \text{ (up to 8 d.p.)} \end{align} $
Thus, the new divisor is:
$ \begin{align} {div}_{\text{new}} & = {div}_{\text{old}} \times \frac{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{new}}}{\sum \left ( \frac{p}{q} \right )_{\text{old}}} \\ & = 15.5671 \times \frac{22.36670735}{16.36670735} \\ & = 21.2740 \text{ (4 d.p.)} \end{align} $
