Homework Help??

My DS9 has to compare the prices of today and the 1870's. How can I find the prices of sugar, flour, material, and a few other basic needs from the 1870's?

I tried googling this and i can't seem to find to much info.

TIA

Sad that I would rather sit here and help with homework than finish cleaning my house.

For future reference, this is how I found it..

In the google search box I typed 1870's price for sugar, corn, yard goods

Glad we could help..

For future reference, doing a search of Google Books is another useful research tool for these kinds of projects.

If your house doesn't get completely cleaned on the schedule of your choice, it will eventually; the OP's son's homework has a much stricter deadline so you were doing something even better than housework!

dd had this lesson recently in algebra, but they supplied a chart on the page with prices now and then. She had to add up a shopping list of items from then and now. Also the 1950 and use percents to see when the dollar stretched more.
Somewhere in the chapter there is not a chart?

I agree, my DS got his homework done and is soundly sleeping in bed. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! He was impressed how fast we got answers, he thought I was crazy when I tried for awhile and couldn't find it then I told him, wait I know someone who can help us.
