    Real GDP 2017 = $6.680

    Explanation:

    First of all you have to calculate the GDP in 2009

    80 * $40 = $3.200

    90 * 11 = $990

    15 * 90 = $1.350

    GDP 2009 = $5.540

    Now you have to calculate the GDP with the quantities of 2017 and the prices of 2009:

    100 * $40 = $4.000

    80 * $11 = $880

    20 * $90 = $1.800

    Real GDP 2017 = $6.680

    Now you know the real GDP in the year 2017, without the effect of the inflation that is the variation of the prices through the years, and as you can see the real GDP is greater than the GDP 2009.
