At i=0.06, a_69 double dots is provided in the Illustrative Life Table....In this case why can't we just use the given value in the table directly to calculate the required quantity?

Does this imply that unless the question explicitly says use the table, we can't use the values from the tables?

Unless the question says mortality follows the ILT and i=0.06, you have to use the values they give you to calculate the answer.
