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
13. ### 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
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
