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."

Some more examples...

Certain annuity-due:

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

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

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

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.

$\mu$

{tex}\mu{\tex}

Do brackets matter?

....I see. They have to be '[' brackets instead of '{' brackets.
