(d) Now T 77 = 9838 L 76 = 1 2 (1376 + 1122) L 75 = 1 2 (1659 + 1376) hence e 75 = T 75 l 75 = T 77 + L 76 + L 75 l 75 = 12604 : 5 1655 = 7 : 5976 4. Smoker rates are now very cheap compared to real cost (and cost from com- petitors) - hence many smokers will buy. Reverse applies to non-smokers - not many non smokers will buy. This will lead to a situation where we are charging an averaged rate to a majority smoker group (i.e. rate too low for the risk). This will very likely lead to (potentially substantial) losses.
