Spanish term or phrase: siniestro cruzado
Good morning Proz,
The sentence goes:
El total de siniestros debe ser cruzado con el total de las primas minimas y de deposito de cada cobertura.
Am I right in thinking this is cross checked/comuted?
Thanks

cross-multiplied
Explanation:
if calculating insurance coverage (equation) from the point of view of an insurance company. The insurance fund is a common pool that presupposes that not everyone will have an accident and will, in fact, want to avoid one. Logically, the number of accidents is going to be much smaller than the total number of subscribers, premiums and deposits.
