Thank you
Keeping in mind that trend growth rate is 2.5% - if inflation is 4% and national income is 5%, that is only 1% real (taking into account inflation) national income and as the trend rate is 2.5% there is an output gap of 1.5%, an output gap means unemployment (especially cyclical).

Hope this helped
