    1. Divide actual revenue by index for the relevant year and multiply for index for year 1 - this will give you sales revenue at yr 1 prices.

    2. Once you've done this there's a clear pattern, so you can easily establish yr 5 revenue at yr 1 prices.

    3. Take yr5 revenue at yr1 price, divide by yr1 index and multiply by yr5 index to get the actual yr5 revenue.
