Spoiler:
Odds are that you're wondering what to do with the first loss amount. The first term should be ((4,877,292 - 4,799,769)/2 + 4,799,769) *0.001, the trapezoid method. Other numerical methods could also be used, such as Simpson's Rule.

You will always have a problem with what to do at the other end. You might fit a curve in various ways, but I suspect that the bet is about whether to use the first point or not.

PS How did the world-wide roller-coaster tour work out?

Code:
```                      Deficit		Average Defecit
99.0%	4,799,769			912,950
99.1%	4,877,292	77,523		Probability
99.2%	4,982,982	183,213		1%
99.3%	5,134,494	334,725		Expected Deficit
99.4%	5,401,793	602,024		9,130
99.5%	5,626,858	827,089		Percent of Premium
99.6%	5,803,433	1,003,664		0.190%
99.7%	6,088,999	1,289,230
99.8%	6,476,636	1,676,867
99.9%	7,021,987	2,222,218```
This is how I set it up. ERD of .19%.

is this way off? My brain doesn't work today.

That's if the premium = 99%ile.

I didn't think ERD had a percentile. It's just integral (0,infinity) of Pr(Loss) max(Loss-Premium,0) dLoss

Your calculation is an estimate of it if the Premium is 4,799,769.

As MH mentioned, ERD doesn't have a percentile. Also, remember to put everything on a PV basis.
