Question 1
exercise 3.4

Love to Excel
An absolute can only be given in an intuition, while all the rest has to do with
analysis. Henri Bergson

Question 1
(a) Let X be defined as the duration a companys air pump will last
X~N(61000,9000^2)
Question states that if pumps fails before vehicle has travelled 50,000 miles,
it will be required at no cost.
P(X<5000)= 0.1108 or 11.08%

LOVE TO EXCEL

Question 1
(b) Let X be defined as the duration a companys air pump will last
X~N(61000,9000^2)
P(X=50,000)
= 0.00210%
However, answer should be 0 as you cannot find the probability distribution
at a point.

Question 1
(c) Let X be defined as the duration a companys air pump will last
X~N(61000,9000^2)
P(42000<X<570000)
=P(X<57000) - P(X<42000)
= 0.310979262 or 31.10%

Question 1
(d) Let X be defined as the duration a companys air pump will last
X~N(61000,9000^2)
For P=0.8,
= NORMINV (0.8,61000,9000)
= 68574.5911
= 68575 miles

Question 2
a)

## Let X be defined as the percentage increase in Dow Jones.

Let Y be defined as the percentage increase in the S&P 500

X~N(11,13^2)
Y~N(10,12^2)
P(X>11)
= 1-P(X<11)
= 0.5

b) Let X be defined as the percentage increase in Dow Jones.
Let Y be defined as the percentage increase in the S&P 500
X~N(11,13^2)
Y~N(10,12^2)
P(X<11)
= 0.04529
= 0.0453

c)

## Let X be defined as the percentage increase in Dow Jones.

Let Y be defined as the percentage increase in the S&P 500

X~N(11,13^2)
Y~N(10,12^2)
P(Y<15)
= 0.6615
= 0.662

Var(0.3X+0.7Y)
=0.3^2VarX + 0.7^2VarY + 2(0.3)(0.7) xy(0.43)

= 9.8
Expected Return (Integrity)
= 0.34*0.08 + 0.33*0.11 + 0.33*0.17
= 11.96

LOVE TO EXCEL

Question 3
(A + B) = A + 2AB + B
Var(A + B) = Var(A) + 2 Cov (A,B) + Var(B)
Hence:
Var(A + B + C) = Var(A) + Var(B) + Var(C) + 2 Cov (A,B) + 2 Cov
(A,C) + 2 Cov (B,C)
As annual returns are mutually independent, Cov (A,B) = 0 and Cov (B,C)
=0

Question 3
Var_Explorer(A+B+C)
= 0.7^2*0.5^2+0.15^2*6^2+0.15^2*20^2

Std Dev= 3.1515
X~N(9.9325,3.1515^2)
P(X>0)

Var_Integrity(A+B+C)
= 0.7^2*0.5^2+0.15^2*6^2+0.15^2*20^2

Std Dev= 6.892699
X~N(47.5093,6.892699^2)
P(X>0)
