EXAM P QUESTIONS OF THE WEEK S. Broverman, 2006 Week of February 20/06 A town's maintenance department has estimated that the cost of snow removal after a major snowstorm is $100,000. Historical information suggests that the number of major snowstorms in a winter season follows a geometric distribution for which the probability of no major snowstorms in a season is .4. The town purchases an insurance policy which pays nothing if there is one or less major snowstorms in the season, but the insurance pays 50% of all seasonal snow removal costs for major snowstorms if there are 2 or more major snowstorms. Find the expected payout by the insurer. The solution can be found below.
