Exam P Practice Problem 91 – Reviewing a Group of Policyholders
Problem 91A
A life insurance actuary reviewed a group of policyholders whose policies or contracts were inforce as of last year. The actuary found that 12% of the policyholders who had only a life insurance policy did not survive to this year and that 7.5% of the policyholders who had only an annuity contract did not survive to this year. The actuary also found that 5.9% of the policyholders who had both a life insurance policy and an annuity contract did not survive to this year.
In this group of policyholders, 65% of the policyholders had a life insurance policy and 57% of the policyholders had an annuity contract. Furthermore, each policyholder in this group either had a life insurance policy or an annuity contract.
What is the percentage of the policyholders that did not survive to this year?

Problem 91B
A sport coach in a university tracks a group of athletes. The coach finds that 36% of the athletes who play soccer only are first year university students and that 20% of the athletes who are involved only in track and field are first year university students. The coach also discovers that 27% of the athletes participates in both soccer and track and field are first year university students.
According to university records, 45% of the athletes in this group play soccer and 68% of the athletes in this group participate in track and field. Each of the athletes in this group either plays soccer or participates in track and field.
Out of this group of athletes, what is the percentage of the athletes that are not first year university students?
