SOA 300 question # 40
I was wondering if anyone can help me out on SOA practice question #40.
The question is pretty straight forward except the part "first-year mortality rate ten times the rate used to calculate the annual benefit premium".
On the solution, I am not sure why it simply multiplies q40 by 10 where I thought when mortality rate is increased by 10 times, mu40 should be increased 10 times, result in [new p40 = p40^10].
