Adjustment method
To approximate the prices, the average of the closest known prices (22 March and 27 March) is used. The formula for the k-th missing price is as follows:
$ {p}_{\text{k}} = {p}_{\text{start}} + \frac{{p}_{\text{end}} - {p}_{\text{start}}}{({d}_{\text{end} \to \text{start}})} \times ({d}_{\text{k} \to \text{start}}) $
For example, if the price for Item A is 331 coins on 22 March (P22) and 292 coins on 27 March (P27), then the price for 23 March (P23) would be:
$ \begin{align} {p}_{\text{23}} &= {p}_{\text{22}} + \frac{{p}_{\text{27}} - {p}_{\text{22}}}{({d}_{\text{27} \to \text{22}})} \times ({d}_{\text{23} \to \text{22}}) \\ \\ &= 331 + \frac{292-331}{5} \times 1 \\ \\ &= 323.2 = 323 \; \text{(rounded to nearest coin)} \end{align} $
And, the price for 24 March (P24) would be:
$ \begin{align} {p}_{\text{24}} &= {p}_{\text{22}} + \frac{{p}_{\text{27}} - {p}_{\text{22}}}{({d}_{\text{27} \to \text{22}})} \times ({d}_{\text{24} \to \text{22}}) \\ \\ &= 331 + \frac{292-331}{5} \times 2 \\ \\ &= 315.4 = 315 \; \text{(rounded to nearest coin)} \end{align} $
And so on. Thus, using the formula for the missing days, the approximate prices would be:
Date > 22 March 23 March 24 March 25 March 26 March 27 March
Item A (price)
331 (actual) 323 (calculated) 315 (calculated) 308 (calculated) 300 (calculated) 292 (actual)
