Then the PMF of the total premium paid up to and including the first claim year is: P X ( x ) = (1 - p ) k p if x = S × 1 - (1 - r ) k r k = 0 , 1 , . . . 2.

So the mean and variance are 1 p and 1 - p p 2 . 6. Let σ Y = var( Y ), then (a) For Y = 4 X : E [ Y ] = E [4 X ] = 4 E [ X ] = 20 , var( Y ) = var(4 X ) = 16var( X ) = 144 , σ Y = 12 . And for Y = - 2 X : E [ Y ] = E [ - 2 X ] = - 2 E [ X ] = - 10 , var( Y ) = var( - 2 X ) = 4var( X ) = 36 , σ Y = 6 . (b) E [ Y ] = E [ X - E [ X ]] = E [ X ] - E [ X ] = 0, var( Y ) = var( X - E [ X ]) = var( X ) = 9, σ Y = var( Y ) = 3. (c) The mean is given by: E [ Y ] = E X - E [ X ] var( X ) = 1 var( X ) E [ X - E [ X ]] = 0 , the variance by: var( Y ) = var X - E [ X ] var( X ) = var( X - E [ X ]) var( X ) = var( X ) var( X ) = 1 and σ Y = 1.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
