Problem 20E

The initial value of an appliance is \$700 and its dollar value in the future is given by where t is time in years. Thus, after the first three years, the appliance is worth nothing as far as the warranty is concerned. If it fails in the first three years, the warranty pays v(t). Compute the expected value of the payment on the warranty if T has an exponential distribution with mean 5.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 1 :

Given that,

The initial value of an appliance is \$7,000 and it's the value in future is Where t is time in years and has an exponential distribution with mean 5.

Our goal is to find

The expected value of the payment on the warranty if T has an exponential distribution with mean 5.

Now we have find the expected value of the payment on the warranty.

Therefore its p.d.f is Therefore expected value of payment on the warranty    Step 2 of 3
