You are a risk-averse decision maker with a utility function U(I) = 1-3200I-2, where I denotes your income expressed in thousands. Your income is $100,000 (thus, I =100). However, there is a 0.2 chance that you will have an accident that results in a loss of $20,000.

What is the highest premium that you would be willing to pay for this insurance policy?
