Problem 14E

A customer buys a \$1000 deductible policy on her \$31,000 car. The probability of having an accident in which the loss is greater than \$1000 is 0.03, and then that loss, as a fraction of the value of the car minus the deductible, has the pdf f (x) = 6(1 − x)5, 0 < x < 1.

(a) What is the probability that the insurance company must pay the customer more than \$2000?

(b) What does the company expect to pay?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 14E

Step1 of 3:

We have car policy problem that is A customer buys a \$1000 deductible policy on her \$31,000 car.

P(having an accident in which the loss is greater than \$1000) = 0.03.

The probability density function is .

We need to find,

(a) P(the insurance company must pay the customer more than \$2000) = ?

(b) What does the company expect to pay?

Step2 of 3:

a).

The probability that the insurance company must pay the customer more than \$2000 is given by  = ………..(1)

Where, Let Then, Now, = = = = = = Hence, =...
