The Food Index is made up of a weighted average of all of the current foods listed in the Market Watch, with the starting date of this average on 12 January 2008, at an index of 100. The overall rising and falling of food prices is reflected in this index.

While specialised for just watching food 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 food added by Jagex (see the FAQ for more information).

As of today, this index is 259.60 Down -2.05

Calculations

From the old divisor obtained from the templates:

$ {div}_{\text{old}} = 19.0000 $


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} \\ & = \text{sum of unchanged ratios} + \text{sum of removed ratios} \\ & = \left (\frac{196}{175} + \frac{225}{195} + \dots + \frac{421}{150} \right ) + \left (\frac{810}{887} + \frac{276}{32} + \dots + \frac{1,102}{100} \right ) \\ & = 42.27255853 \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} \\ & = 42.27255853 - \left ( \frac{810}{887} + \frac{276}{32} + \dots + \frac{1,102}{100} \right ) + 7 \\ & = 19.49428715 \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}}} \\ & = 19.0000 \times \frac{42.27255853}{19.49428715} \\ & = 8.7619 \text{ (4 d.p.)} \end{align} $
