In this new quiz from, readers are encouraged to guess the original sales price of many household items in the UK, and then told how much this would be in today’s money using an inflation calculator. 

For example, the quiz asks what the price of a Big Mac was in 1974 and gives you three possible answers to choose from. It will then tell you the correct answer and state how much that would be worth now.  

What’s surprising is that while the price of many items has soared since the 1970s, other prices have stayed the same or even decreased when you take into account inflation. 

Think you have a head for figures? Try the quiz below and see for yourself how much you remember.
