Taken from Grinstead and Snell, Introduction to Proba-bility Theory3.In the Life Table, one ﬁnds that in a population of 100,000 females, 89.835% can expect tolive to age 60, while 57.062% can expect to live to age 80. Given that a woman is 60, what is theprobability that she lives to age 80? Repeat the problem for men.2
