Is this Rate of Inflation calculation for CPI correct?

CPI= 100 Base Year CPI= 109 Following year Rate of Inflation=?

My calculation

    Yes. It's hard to tell from the way you wrote it, but if the base year is 100 (which it always is) and the current index number is 109, then that's 9% inflation since the base year.
