• P = the new price
• p = the original price provided in the quotation
• a = the percentage of the price that is not eligible for revision (a >= 0.20)
• c = the percentage of the material cost in the total price (a + c = 1)
• I = the new material index (the month preceding the termination of the works)
• i = the original material index (the month preceding the date of the quotation)"
