Got it. Thanks @Matthew Graves
2. 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

Thanks @brian.field Will have a look tonight.
5. 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?
6. 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
7. P1.T2.300.1 Probability functions Question

Yup. Was fully aware of it to, just slipped out in error! Hope not to repeat that error at the exam haha
8. 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!
9. 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...
10. 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

Isn't it 0.7?

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

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
14. 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...

17. FAQ Before Exam Study Plan Guide

What is the best way to study? I have been "out of it" for over 10 years. Decided to throw my hat in the ring. Shall I just study from the BT notes? Or compliment with Schweser? Opinions! Ideas! Thoughts! Cheers!
18. P1.T2.300.1 Probability functions Question

Hi It has been 15 years since I last touched this stuff. I am very much not up to snuff any more. Can someone assist? How does: f(x) = x/8 - 0.75 become: F(X) = x^2/16 - 0.75*x + c. Thanks
19. Study notes Miller, Chapters 2, 3, 4, 6 & 7

When can we expect these? It has been 15 years since I did statistics and I am pulling my hair out recalling the "good old days" Lol Thanks
