If inflation is running high, the Fed will raise interest rates, sell bonds on the open market, and raise the reserve ratio (if it comes to that. It rarely ever does). Raising interest rates makes money "rare." Selling bonds decreases the reserves of banks, which decreases their lending capabilities (again, making money more rare). The reserve ration is the "nuclear option" of monetary policy. It specifically changes how much money banks have to keep on hand. If it changes, the money multiplier changes. In other words, the Fed would raise the reserve ratio in order to fight inflation.

It depends on how many you raise.
