on page 129 there is a question asking for the target loss ratio. the answer listed is .5833 is anyone able to get that answer? If so how?

Yes, I got it. Consider general expenses as \$45,000, not \$5,000.

T= (1-V-Q)/(1+G)

T = .5833 (?)
V = .32
Q = .05
G = .09

what's wrong?

Here, T=(1-V-Q)/(1+G)

G=40,000/500,000 = 0.08
Q = 0.05

V = (2000,000+20,000+50,000)/1,000 + (45,000/900,000) = 0.32

T=(1 - 0.32 -0.05)/(1+.08) = 0.05833

Correction:

V = (200,000 + 20,000 + 50,000)/1,000,000 + (45,000/900,000) = 032

Note that General expenses should be 45,000. Please refer to old edition of the book.

Ok.

So why is ULAE included in V? where the calculation on page 114 does not include ULAE in V?

Or are you refer to a typo in this pdf? http://casact.org/admissions/syllabus/ch3.pdf
(pg 55 of 74 is textbook pg 129)

where the 5,000 should read 45,000.

(i think i was trying to add 40,000 ULAE to 5,000 Gen)
