1. Given 2 p x = 0 . 98, p x +2 = 0 . 985 and 5 q x = 0 . 0775, calculate: (a) 3 p x . [4] 3 p x = 2 p x p x +2 = 0 . 98 × 0 . 985 = 0 . 96530 (b) 2 p x +3 . [4] 3 p x 2 p x +3 = 5 p x = 1 - 5 q x 2 p x +3 = 1 - 5 q x 3 p x = 1 - 0 . 0775 0 . 9653 = 0 . 95566 (c) 2 | 3 q x . [4] 2 | 3 q x = 2 p x - 5 p x = 0 . 98 - (1 - 0 . 0775) = 0 . 0575 2

2. The survival function for the complete future life time of a life age 0 is S T 0 ( t ) = 1 - t ω , t < ω. You are also given that 0 e 0 = 25. (a) Show that ω = 50 [6] 0 e 0 = Z ω 0 t p 0 dt = Z ω 0 S T 0 ( t ) dt = Z ω 0 1 - t ω dt = " t - t 2 2 ω # ω 0 = ω 2 = 25 . This implies ω = 50. (b) Calculate 20 p 40 . [4] 10 p 20 = S T 0 (30) S T 0 (20) = 1 - 30 50 1 - 20 50 = 2 3 . 3
