    GARP.FRM.PQ.P1 Solving R

    Can someone help me solve for R here? The book gives a solution of 4.953. Thanks 2.5e^-0.04x0.5 + 2.5e^-0.045x1 + 2.5e^-0.048x1.5 + 102.5e^-2r = 100 THanks

    Miller, Chapter 2 video: Probabilities

    Hi @David Harper CFA FRM I was watching the chapter two video this morning while getting ready for work. I came across this and had a question for you. What is the probability of just an "up" situation? Is it (0.7) x (0.8) + (0.3) x (0.3) ? = 0.65?

    algebra in P1.T2. Miller Chapter 2 video

    F(X): 3/125 | x^2 = 3x^2/125 = 1/125 * dx 3x^2 = 1/125 * 3/1*x^3/3 3s cancel = 1/125 * x^3 = x^3/125 x=(0.05*125)*1/3 = 1.842 -5 = 3.158

    P1.T2.300.1 Probability functions Question

    Can some of the more polished forum members please validate my statement above? I am really not confident in my probabilities!

    P1.T2.300.1 Probability functions Question

    Ok. I misread the question. Sorry. You are trying to pick a Bond (B) and an Industrial security (I). P(B) = 10/20 (10 bonds in the pool 10 equities in the pool) P (I) = 14/20 (6 utilities in the pool, 14 industrials in the pool) So, you are trying to figure out the P (B & I) --which is the...

    P1.T2.300.1 Probability functions Question

    This is really not my strong point but, I figure that since you have 6 chances out of 10 to pick an industrial stock and 8 chances out of 10 to pick an industrial bond, you have 14 chances out of 20 to pick an industrial security. 14/20 = 0.7

    That is so strange. I kept on inputting those figures and getting different numbers. I will try again later. Thanks

    Page 88 -- Calculating Theoretical futures price for a TBond Futures contract

    Hi Hi @David Harper CFA FRM Was working on this one last night. PV of the coupon, $5.803. Could not get this. Got $5.73x and tried again and calculating $5.85x What am I doing wrong here? I am assuming I am doing something wrong here with the day counts. thanks

    Correlation Coefficient (small r)

    Hi @David Harper CFA FRM Love the videos. Am on video Stock & Watson 4 &5. Your first question, find small r. I had it 98% of the way. One thing threw me off: you mention in the question that the TSS = 90.625 dollars ^2 --- what does the ^2 part mean in the TSS? Do I have to square the...
