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.

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.
