Just an advice to people taking this exam: Understanding isn't as important as being able to memorize and recall the formulas in the formula sheets.
I would get comfortable with all the formulas first before trying to get a deep understanding of the material. 
#33




S0(x) = (k^2  x)^0.5/k
What is S30(x)? I thought it was [(k^2  x)/(k^2  30)]^0.5 but don't think this is correct. Is it [(k^2  x  30)/(k^2  30)]^0.5?

Future lifetime of a newborn is 30 + x, not x, so your 2nd expression is correct. Last edited by NotSmart; 01212019 at 02:59 PM..

Again, I highly recommend you just memorize the formulas instead of trying to understand them.
Almost everyone I know who has problems with this exam tried to understand concepts when they should have been memorizing formulas.

Your math degree is from Capital Community College, right? That's what your profile indicates. Just curious.
