The probability of death in a given year is provided. x = age 60 61 62 63 64 P(death at this age) 0.01045 0.01402 0.01633 0.01987 0.02206

Jim is applying to Big Rock Insurance Company for his term insurance policy.

(a) What is the probability that Jim will die in his 60th year? (Enter a number. Enter your answer to five decimal places.)

Using this probability and the \$50,000 death benefit, what is the expected cost to Big Rock Insurance (in dollars)? (Enter a number. Round your answer to two decimal places.) \$

(b) What is the expected cost to Big Rock Insurance for years

61

62

63

and 64 (in dollars)?

What would be the total expected cost to Big Rock Insurance over the years 60 through 64 (in dollars, Enter a number. Round your answer to two decimal places.) \$

(c) If Big Rock Insurance wants to make a profit of \$700 above the expected total cost paid out for Jim's death, how much should it charge for the policy (in dollars)? (Enter a number. Round your answer to two decimal places.) \$

(d) If Big Rock Insurance Company charges \$5000 for the policy, how much profit does the company expect to make (in dollars)? (Enter a number. Round your answer to two decimal places.) \$

 a) probability that dies in 60 th year= 0.01045 expected cost = 50000*0.01045= 522.5
 b) probability expected cost P(61)=0.01402 50000*0.01402=701 P(62)=0.01633 50000*0.01633=816.5 P(63)=0.01987 50000*0.01987=993.5 P(64)=0.02206 50000*0.02206=1103 total expected cost = 4136.5
 c) total premium charged=proft+expected cost =4136.5+700= 4836.5
 d) Profit =premium charged-expected cost=5000-4136.5= 863.5
