(20) (b) Find Prob(X + Y < 1). 2 4. Let X denote consumption. Consider the constant relative risk aversion (CRRA) utility function Assume " 1. (10) (a) Let Z = R n(X). Denote its p.d.f. by f Z (z) = exp(z)f X [exp(z)] and its moment generating function by M Z (t) = E Z [exp(tZ)]. Assume M Z (t) exists at t = 1  " . Express expected utility in terms of M Z ( @ ). (10) (b) Suppose Z N( : , F 2 ). Find E[U(X)]. (5) (c) Suppose Z t( 2 , * 2 , < ), where 0 < < < 4 . Find E[U(X)]....
