Assume that the return from the option is R = max( P55 , 0) where P is the price of the stock in 13 weeks. Calculate E ( R ) . Problem 4Let X be a r.v. with moment generating function M X ( t ) = 1 3 et2 , t < ln 3 2 . Find f X ( . ) on R X . Problem 5The number of calls an ofcer receives during a working day is a Poisson(5) random variable. The ofcer misses a call with probability . 01 independently from call to call. Find the probability that the ofcer answers exactly 10 calls in a working day....
