I have been to Marland's old Ponca City, Oklahoma offices (Now Conoco)

Everything is pretty much gone now. Ponca City was a truly amazing place in earlier times.

Marland, worth $85,000,000 in 1920 = X today.

Find X.

Obviously not compounded.

$85,000,000 in 1920 had the same purchasing power as $1,085,805,291 in 2017

X = $1,085,805,291 in 2017
