Conditional Distribution Problem
The frequency distribution for the number of losses for a policy with no deductible is negative binomial with r = 3 and β = 5. Loss amounts for this policy follow the Weibull distribution with θ = 1000 and τ = 0.3. Determine the expected number of payments when a deductible of 200 is applied.
I'm not entirely sure how to go about this one... am I supposed to find the expected number of claims with loss amounts that are greater than 200? If so, I think that would give me the expected number of payments the question asks for. But if that's what I'm after, how do I calculate that? I can get the probability that an individual loss amount is greater than 200 from the provided Weibull distribution, but then how do I tie that back to the negative binomial distribution?

Suppose that you knew that there were (say) 10 claims and that the probability that any given claim was bigger than 200 was (say) 30%, how many claims bigger than 200 would you expect?
Now suppose that the number of claims is some random variable, N, ... take it from there.
