Part 3: Conditiona l Probability and Bayes Formula SOA Exam P/ CAS Exam 1

Formula

This chapter discusses about:

1. Conditional Probability

2. Bayes Formula

Conditional probability refers to probability given that some other event has occurred. For

example, the probability that a 10-year old boy passes away within 5 years and the probability

that a 20-year old young man passes away within 5 years are not the same. This is because the

attained age is not the same. For the boy, 20 years of living has not occurred, but for the young

man, he has already attained 20 years old. The “events that has occurred” are not the same for

both persons.

Consider another example: in a class of 50 students, 20 are male students, 30 are female

students. Out of the 20 male students, 3 of them are smokers. Out of the 30 female students, 2

of them are smokers. The probability that a male student who smokes is chosen out from the

3

whole class is , whereas the the probability that a male student who smokes is chosen out

50

3

from the 20 male students is .

20

As we can see, the total number of possible event (the denominator) determines the probability.

The greater the total number of possible event, the smaller the probability is.

n ( AB ) P ( AB )

P ( A | B) = = , where

n ( A) P ( A)

P ( A | B ) can be interpreted as the probability that A occurs, given that B has already occured

Many students are confused between P ( AB ) and P ( A | B ) . The difference between these 2

lies at the time of the occurrence of B : AB implies that A and B happen at the same time,

while A | B implies that B has already occurred before A ; of course, A | B also implies that

both A and B happen, but the timing of occurrence are not the same.

Example 3.1

You are given that P ( A) = 0.3 and P ( B ) = 0.6 . If A and B are independent of each other,

determine the probability that B occurs, given that A does not occur.

Solution 3.1

( ) = 1 − P ( A) P ( B ) = P ( B ) = 0.6.

Part 3: Conditiona l Probability and Bayes Formula SOA Exam P/ CAS Exam 1

Example 3.2

You are given that P ( A) = 0.45 , P ( C ) = 0.3 , P ( BC ) = 0.22 , and P ( AC ) = 0.32 . If A and B

are mutually exclusive, find P ( B | A ∪ C ) .

Solution 3.2

P ( B ∩ ( A ∪ C )) P ( AB ) + P ( BC ) 0 + 0.22

P(B | A∪C) = = = = 0.5116.

P( A∪C) P ( A ) + P ( C ) − P ( AC ) 0.45 + 0.3 − 0.32

Example 3.3

In urn A , there are 3 red balls and 5 blue balls. In urn B , there are 5 red balls, and n blue balls.

Determine n if the probability of drawing a blue ball from urn A is twice greater than the

probability of drawing a red ball from urn B .

Solution 3.3

Let A represents the event that a ball is to be drawn from urn A .

Let R represents the event that red ball is drawn.

As such,

( ) (

P R C | A = 2 P R | AC ⇒ ) 5

Example 3.4

2 urns are selected at random. The probability that urn A is selected is 0.3.

In urn A , there are 3 white balls and 7 black balls. In the other urn, there are 2 while balls and 5

black balls.

A person is to select an urn, and draw a ball. The ball is then returned to the urn. This is

repeated for the 2nd time.

Determine the probability that white balls are drawn for both draws.

Solution 3.4

Let A represents the event that a ball is to be drawn from urn A .

Let W represents the event that white ball is drawn.

The first and second draws are independent of each other, since the result of the first draw does

not affect the 2nd draw. Hence, we need to find the probability that a white ball is drawn, and

square it to obtain the answer.

Since white ball can be drawn from urn A and other urn, we need to consider both urns:

Part 5: Discrete Probability Distribution SOA Exam P/ CAS Exam 1

This chapter discusses about:

1. Uniform distribution

2. Binomial distribution

3. Poisson distribution

4. Negative binomial distribution

5. Hypergeometric distribution

Consider this illustration: You are a human resource manager, considering 2 fresh graduates

who have applied for an actuarial executive position in your company. Their GPAs are not yet

known because they have just taken their final exams yesterday. You are to hire one of them

based on their statistic exam mark that they took yesterday, given that one of them is from

Harvard University whereas another one is from XXX University (a university which is not in the

top 5000 world university list). No doubt, common sense tells you to recruit the Harvard

graduate, since the probability that Harvard graduate has higher exam mark is much higher.

Now, if you are given that the statistic exam mark of both students are in range between a and

a + 9 , discretely and equally distributed, is the value of a the same for both students? The

answer is no. The Harvard graduate probably has higher value of a , say a = 85 , whereas for

XXX graduate, maybe the value of a is lower, say a = 65 . This variable a is known as the

parameter of the distribution of the statistic mark of the student.

Let us look at some commonly used discrete probability mass distribution with their properties.

represented by N ∼ U ( a, b ) , which means:

1

P ( N = n) = , {( a, b ) | a ∈ ℤ, b ∈ ℤ} ,

b−a

where a and b are the parameters of this distribution.

As you can see, every value of n between a and b are equally distributed at the probability of

1

, therefore it is known as uniform distribution. As such, the expected value of random

b−a

a+b

variable N is simply E ( N ) = ; the simple average of the boundaries. The variance of N is

2

( b − a)

2

Var ( N ) = .

For a random variable N following uniform distribution with parameter a and b ,

(b − a )

E(N) = , Var ( N ) = .

Part 5: Discrete Probability Distribution SOA Exam P/ CAS Exam 1

Example 5.1

You are given that the annual claim frequency of an insurance company is uniformly distributed

between 101 and 150. Find:

1. P ( N ≤ n ) ;

2. E ( N ) ;

3. Var ( N ) ;

4. P ( N < 123) ;

5. P ( N < 136 | N > 120) ;

6. E ( N |135 < N ≤ 140) ;

7. Var ( N |135 < N ≤ 140 ) .

Solution 5.1

4. P ( N < 123) = P ( N ≤ 122 ) = = 0.42 .

P (121 ≤ N ≤ 135) (13550−100) − (12050−100) 15 1

6. If N is constrained between 136 and 140, this means that N is uniformly distributed from

140 + 136

136 to 140. Hence, the expected value is E ( N |135 < N ≤ 140 ) = = 138 .

7. If N is constrained between 136 and 140, this means that N is uniformly distributed from

(140 − 136 )

136 to 140. Hence, the expected value is Var ( N |135 < N ≤ 140 ) = = .

Part 5: Discrete Probability Distribution SOA Exam P/ CAS Exam 1

Example 5.2

If you are given that the discrete random variable N is uniformly distributed from 1 to 100, derive

the moment-generating function of N .

Solution 5.2

M ( t ) = E ( etN )

= ∑ etn f ( n )

n =1

100

= f ( n ) ∑ etn

n =1

100 n =1

You should be able to do the reverse: recognize what distribution a random variable follows

given the moment-generating function.
