    Suppose that Skipper's insurer views him as having the following distribution for the present value of losses:

    Loss=
    $20,000 with probability 0.02
    $5,000 with probability 0.04
    $1,000 with probability 0.10
    $0 with probability 0.84

    What is the fair premiums for full coverage if the competitive loading (administrative costs and capital costs) equals 15% of expected claim costs?

    Suppose that Skipper believes his probabilities of losses are ½ of what the insurer believes. What is the loading on the policy from Skipper's perspective?
