How can I apply this to a general formula for Bayesian and Credibility premium with Inverse Gamma and a Gamma prior? Thanks so much!
What you have written makes no sense. Z must be between 0 and 1, and you wrote that Z = 100103. Can't be.

Also, you can't get the credibility premium (Buhlmann?) without knowing the observations.

Finally, you write the Bayesian estimate as a formula in "a" and "n", but previously wrote that a=4 once and a=50 another time and n=25.

Might you look again at the problem and then carefully restate your question?

The data and answer still make little sense. Might you scan the printed version of the problem and "solution" and post it? I suspect you have typed some things incorrectly.
