How to explain actuarial exams to someone else...

Good Einstein quote - "One had to cram all this stuff into one's mind for the examinations, whether one liked it or not. This coercion had such a deterring effect on me that, after I had passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire year."

Certain annuity-due:

\ddot{a}_{\overline{n}|} =

Complete life expectancy:
\overset{\circ}e_x =

Temporary life expectancy:
\overset{\circ}e_{x:\overline{n}|} =
Continuous term insurance:
\bar{A}_{\overset{1}x:\overline{n}|} =

When I first saw the title for this thread, I thought it said "An Introduction to Mime Tax". Thought it was going to be hilarious. That is all.

{tex}\mu{\tex}

Do brackets matter?
