--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

10. Solution: C
Consider the following events about a randomly selected auto insurance customer:
A = customer insures more than one car
B = customer insures a sports car
We want to find the probability of the complement of A intersecting the complement of B
(exactly one car, non-sports). But P ( A
c
∩ B
c
) = 1 – P (A ∪ B)
And, by the Additive Law, P ( A ∪ B ) = P ( A) + P ( B ) – P ( A ∩ B ).
By the Multiplicative Law, P ( A ∩ B ) = P ( B | A ) P (A) = 0.15 * 0.64 = 0.096
It follows that P ( A ∪ B ) = 0.64 + 0.20 – 0.096 = 0.744 and P (A
c
∩ B
c
) = 0.744 =
0.256

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

11. Solution: B
Let
C = Event that a policyholder buys collision coverage
D = Event that a policyholder buys disability coverage
Then we are given that P[C] = 2P[D] and P[C ∩ D] = 0.15 .
By the independence of C and D, it therefore follows that
0.15 = P[C ∩ D] = P[C] P[D] = 2P[D] P[D] = 2(P[D])
2

(P[D])
2
= 0.15/2 = 0.075
P[D] = 0.075 and P[C] = 2P[D] = 2 0.075
Now the independence of C and D also implies the independence of C
C
and D
C
. As a
result, we see that P[C
C
∩ D
C
] = P[C
C
] P[D
C
] = (1 – P[C]) (1 – P[D])
= (1 – 2 0.075 ) (1 – 0.075 ) = 0.33 .

12. Solution: E
“Boxed” numbers in the table below were computed.
High BP Low BP Norm BP Total
Regular heartbeat 0.09 0.20 0.56 0.85
Irregular heartbeat 0.05 0.02 0.08 0.15
Total 0.14 0.22 0.64 1.00
From the table, we can see that 20% of patients have a regular heartbeat and low blood
pressure.

Var[X] = E[X

Now the range of claims within one standard deviation of the mean is given by
[55.00 – 21.79, 55.00 + 21.79] = [33.21, 76.79]
Therefore, the proportion of claims within one standard deviation is

78. Solution: B
That the device fails within the first hour means the joint density function must be
integrated over the shaded region shown below.

This evaluation is more easily performed by integrating over the unshaded region and
subtracting from 1.

Let X

be the number of claims filed by each of the 1250 policyholders.
We are given that each X

follows a Poisson distribution with mean 2 . It follows that
E[X

1
+ . . . + X
1250
.
Assuming that the random variables are independent, we may conclude that S has an
approximate normal distribution with E[S] = Var[S] = (2)(1250) = 2500 .
Therefore P[2450 < S < 2600] =

85. Solution: B
Denote the policy premium by P . Since x is exponential with parameter 1000, it follows
from what we are given that E[X] = 1000, Var[X] = 1,000,000, [ ] Var X = 1000 and P =
100 + E[X] = 1,100 . Now if 100 policies are sold, then Total Premium Collected =
100(1,100) = 110,000
Moreover, if we denote total claims by S, and assume the claims of each policy are
independent of the others then E[S] = 100 E[X] = (100)(1000) and Var[S] = 100 Var[X]
= (100)(1,000,000) . It follows from the Central Limit Theorem that S is approximately
normally distributed with mean 100,000 and standard deviation = 10,000 . Therefore,
P[S ≥ 110,000] = 1 – P[S ≤ 110,000] = 1 –

100. Solution: B
Note
P(X = 0) = 1/6
P(X = 1) = 1/12 + 1/6 = 3/12
P(X = 2) = 1/12 + 1/3 + 1/6 = 7/12 .
E[X] = (0)(1/6) + (1)(3/12) + (2)(7/12) = 17/12
E[X

2
(1/6) + (1)

(7/12) = 31/12
Var[X] = 31/12 – (17/12)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

101. Solution: D
Note that due to the independence of X and Y
Var(Z) = Var(3X − Y − 5) = Var(3X) + Var(Y) = 3
2
Var(X) + Var(Y) = 9(1) + 2 = 11 .

102. Solution: E
Let X and Y denote the times that the two backup generators can operate. Now the
variance of an exponential random variable with mean

Then assuming that X and Y are independent, we see

(Alternative Solution)
Define g(x) = kx and h(y) = 1 . Then
f(x,y) = g(x)h(x)
In other words, f(x,y) can be written as the product of a function of x alone and a function
of y alone. It follows that X and Y are independent. Therefore, Cov[X, Y] = 0 .

Because the number of payouts (including payouts of zero when the loss is below the

Let H be the percentage of clients with homeowners insurance and R be the percentage of
clients with renters insurance.

Because 36% of clients do not have auto insurance and none have both homeowners and
renters insurance, we calculate that 8% (36% – 17% – 11%) must have renters insurance,
but not auto insurance.

(H – 11)% have both homeowners and auto insurance, (R – 8)% have both renters and
auto insurance, and none have both homeowners and renters insurance, so (H + R – 19)%
must equal 35%. Because H = 2R, R must be 18%, which implies that 10% have both
renters and auto insurance.




129. Key: B

The reimbursement is positive if health care costs are greater than 20, and because of the
memoryless property of the exponential distribution, the conditional distribution of health
care costs greater than 20 is the same as the unconditional distribution of health care
costs.

We observe that a reimbursement of 115 corresponds to health care costs of 150 (100% x
(120 – 20) + 50% x (150 – 120)), which is 130 greater than the deductible of 20.

Letting t denote the relative frequency with which twin-sized mattresses are sold, we
have that the relative frequency with which king-sized mattresses are sold is 3t and the
relative frequency with which queen-sized mattresses are sold is (3t+t)/4, or t. Thus, t =
0.2 since t + 3t + t = 1. The probability we seek is 3t + t = 0.80.

is the moment generating function common to X and Y. Thus, K(t) =

. This is the moment generating function of a discrete random variable that
assumes the values -1, 0, and 1 with respective probabilities 0.30, 0.40, and 0.30. The value we

Suppose the component represented by the random variable X fails last. This is
represented by the triangle with vertices at (0, 0), (10, 0) and (5, 5). Because the density
is uniform over this region, the mean value of X and thus the expected operational time of
the machine is 5. By symmetry, if the component represented by the random variable Y
fails last, the expected operational time of the machine is also 5. Thus, the unconditional
expected operational time of the machine must be 5 as well.

The unconditional probabilities for the number of people in the car who are hospitalized
are 0.49, 0.42 and 0.09 for 0, 1 and 2, respectively. If the number of people hospitalized

the probability that the total loss will be less than 1 is 0.5. Thus, the expected number of

There are 10 (5 choose 3) ways to select the three columns in which the three items will
appear. The row of the rightmost selected item can be chosen in any of six ways, the row
of the leftmost selected item can then be chosen in any of five ways, and the row of the
middle selected item can then be chosen in any of four ways. The answer is thus
(10)(6)(5)(4) = 1200. Alternatively, there are 30 ways to select the first item. Because
there are 10 squares in the row or column of the first selected item, there are 30 − 10 = 20
ways to select the second item. Because there are 18 squares in the rows or columns of
the first and second selected items, there are 30 − 18 = 12 ways to select the third item.
The number of permutations of three qualifying items is (30)(20)(12). The number of
combinations is thus (30)(20)(12)/3! = 1200.

Let N denote the number of hurricanes, which is Poisson distributed with mean
and variance 4.

Let
i
X denote the loss due to the i
th
hurricane, which is exponentially
distributed with mean 1,000 and therefore variance (1,000)
2
= 1,000,000.

Let X denote the total loss due to the N hurricanes.

This problem can be solved using the conditional variance formula. Note that
independence is used to write the variance of a sum as the sum of the variances.

An alternative solution begins by imagining Rahul and Toby examine policies
simultaneously until at least one of the finds a claim. At each examination there are four
possible outcomes:
1. Both find a claim. The probability is 0.02.
2. Rahul finds a claim and Toby does not. The probability is 0.08.
3. Toby finds a claim and Rahul does not. The probability is 0.18
4. Neither finds a claim. The probability is 0.72.
Conditioning on the examination at which the process ends, the probability that it ends
with Rahul being the first to find a claim (and hence needing to examine fewer policies)
is 0.08/(0.02 + 0.08 + 0.18) = 8/28 = 0.2857.

Therefore. Combining equations.  5.  6.  The second root is rejected since this would make λx  negative. We are given λx = λy  ‐ 8 and λx + λ2x =0. we get a quadratic in λy: λy ‐ 8 + (λy  ‐ 8) 2 = 0.  3.153.4 λ2y ‐15. the variance is 35. Two roots: λy = 35 and 4. we get: 0.6*(λy + λ2y ).6λy+56 = 0. E(N) = Var(N) = λ and E(N2) = λ+ λ2 . Simplifying.  2.
