Unformatted text preview: 1 2. Assume that the force of mortality for a survival model is given by x = 1 110x . (a) Find the survival function S ( t ) corresponding to this force of mortality, simplifying as far as possible. (b) What is the limiting age for this model? (c) Sketch the survival function S ( t ). (d) Find the density function f ( t ). (e) What do you notice about this survival model? (In particular, assess its suitability as a survival model for human mortality.) 2...
