**4. For company A there is a 60% chance to get no claims during the coming year, and
**

for company B this chance is 70%. For company A, if at least one claim is made, then the

total claim amount is normally distributed with mean 10,000 and standard deviation 2,000;

the same is true for company B only the mean is 9,000 and the standard deviation is 2,000.

Assume that claims for the two companies are independent. What is the probability that in

the coming year the amount of claims for company B will exceed the amount of claims for

company A?

[A] .180

[B] .185

[C] .217

[D] .223

[E] .240

5. The waiting time for the first claim from a good driver and the waiting time for the

first claim from a bad driver are independent and follow exponential distributions with mean

6 years and 3 years, respectively. What is the probability that the first claim from a good

driver will be filed within 3 years and the first claim from a bad driver will be filed within 2

years?

[A] (1/18)(1 − e−2/3 − e−1/2 + e−7/6 ) [B] (1/18)e−7/6 [C] 1 − e−2/3 − e−1/2 + e−7/6

1 − e−2/3 − e−/2 + e−1/3 [E] 1 − (1/3)e−2/3 − (1/6)e−1/2 + (1/18)e−7/6

**6. Two instruments are used to measure the height, h, of a tower. The error made
**

by the less accurate instrument is normally distributed with mean 0 and standard deviation

(.0056)h. The error made by the more accurate instrument is normally distributed with mean

0 and standard deviation (.0044)h. Assuming that the two measurements are independent,

what is the probability that their difference is within (.005)h of the height of the tower?

[A] .38

[B] .47

[C] .68

[D] .84

[E] .90

**7. The lifetime of a printer costing 200 is exponentially distributed with mean 2 years.
**

The manufacturer agrees to pay a full refund to a buyer if the printer fails during the first

year following its purchase, and a one-half refund if it fails during the second year. If the

manufacturer sells 100 printers, how much should it expect to pay in refunds?

[A] 6,312

07 [B] . Calculate the probability that the component will work without failing for at least five hours.38 [D] .05)x if failure occurs during the second or third year.21 2 . find the coefficient of variation (which is standard deviation divided by the mean) for the annual claim paid on the policy for the one year period following the current one year.29 [C] . and it will pay (.57 10. An insurer uses the exponential distribution with mean µ as the model for the total annual claim occurring from a particular insurance policy in the current one year period. If failure occurs after the third year. [A] 1. [A] .1 [E] 1/1. The time to failure of a component in an electronic device has an exponential distribution with a median of four hours.8. no payment is made. At what level must x be set if the expected payment made under this insurance is to be 1000? [A] 3858 [B] 4449 [C] 5382 [D] 5644 [E] 7235 9. The time from purchase until failure of the equipment is exponentially distributed with mean 10 years.42 [E] . A piece of equipment is being insured against early failure.21 [B] 1. The insurance will pay an amount x if the equipment fails during the first year.1 [C] 1 [D] 1/1. The insurer assumes an inflation factor of 10% for the one year period following the current one year period. Using the insurer’s assumption.
