# Exam P Practice Problem 92 – Expected Claim Payment

Problem 92-A

The size of a claim that an auto insurance company pays out is modeled by a random variable with the following density function:

$\displaystyle f(x)=\frac{1}{5000} \ (100-x) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0

By subjecting the insured to a deductible of 12 per claim, what is the expected reduction in claim payment?

$\displaystyle (A) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 9.50$

$\displaystyle (B) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 10.6$

$\displaystyle (C) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 11.1$

$\displaystyle (D) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 11.8$

$\displaystyle (E) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 12.0$

Problem 92-B

The size of a claim that an auto insurance company pays out is modeled by a random variable with the following density function:

$\displaystyle f(x)=\frac{1}{3200} \ (80-x) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 0

By subjecting the insured to a deductible of 10 per claim, by what percent is the expected claim payment reduced?

$\displaystyle (A) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 10 \%$

$\displaystyle (B) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 15 \%$

$\displaystyle (C) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 22 \%$

$\displaystyle (D) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 25 \%$

$\displaystyle (E) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ 33 \%$
