    You're most likely not getting any replies to these questions because no-one can understand what the notation means.

    Sorry, I don't drop by often enough...

    b. is easy enough. Find _{1}p_{96} + _{2}p_{96} = _{1}p_{96} + _{1}p_{96}* _{1}p_{97}

    Usually, the complete expectation is taken to be 1/2 greater than the curtate expectation, but you may wish to work the intregrals for the exact values.

    You will need the exact relationship between \mu_{x}\;and\;_{t}p_{x}
