TIA Friedland Ch.15 1999 #62 gives the expected ult claims and asks for the development pattern of future periods. And the solution uses the expected ult claim to distribute the IBNR into future periods (as in expected claim method)

But wouldn't it make more sense to use the BF method, i.e. use the unreported % derived from development factor to calculate IBNR first?

any thoughts? thanks for the help..
