The Professional Life

Wherever there is risk, there are opportunities for actuaries. And the recent financial crisis has further highlighted the skills actuaries bring to the table. Watch this new Actuaries in Action video to hear what some of today's actuaries say about the future of the profession and the increasing demand for actuaries, especially in nontraditional roles.

Do The Math

An insurance company estimates that 40% of policyholders who have only an auto policy will renew next year and 60% of policyholders who have only a homeowners policy will renew next year. The company estimates that 80% of policyholders who have both an auto and a homeowners policy will renew at least one of those policies next year.

Company records show that 65% of policyholders have an auto policy, 50% of policyholders have a homeowners policy, and 15% of policyholders have both an auto and a homeowners policy.

Using the company's estimates, calculate the percentage of policyholders that will renew at least one policy next year.
