    Let's look at an example of calculating a cross-index

    Last month, the average price for MS-5B waste paper sold was 19,485 rubles/ton, and the average price for corrugated paper was 51,845 rubles/ton. To calculate the cross-index for this type of waste paper product, you need to divide the price of corrugated paper by the cost of MS-5B waste paper.

    How does the cross-index work in the Russian market?
