# Exam P Practice Problem 104 – two random insurance losses

Problem 104-A

Two random losses $X$ and $Y$ are jointly modeled by the following density function:

$\displaystyle f(x,y)=\frac{1}{32} \ (4-x) \ (4-y) \ \ \ \ \ \ 0

Suppose that both of these losses had occurred. Given that $X$ is exactly 2, what is the probability that $Y$ is less than 1?

$\displaystyle (A) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{7}{24}$

$\displaystyle (B) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{11}{24}$

$\displaystyle (C) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{12}{24}$

$\displaystyle (D) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{13}{24}$

$\displaystyle (E) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{14}{24}$

Problem 104-B

Two random losses $X$ and $Y$ are jointly modeled by the following density function:

$\displaystyle f(x,y)=\frac{1}{96} \ (x+2y) \ \ \ \ \ \ 0

Suppose that both of these losses had occurred. Determine the probability that $Y$ exceeds 2 given that the loss $X$ is known to be 2.

$\displaystyle (A) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{13}{36}$

$\displaystyle (B) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{24}{36}$

$\displaystyle (E) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{29}{36}$
