Same questions, slightly different scenario:

Situation:
* Dec 25, 1997, company announces "The cap for the upcoming year (1998) is 12%."
* On Jan 1, 1998 the S&P index was 1000.
* On Jan 1, 1999 the S&P index was 1150. (15% index growth)

Scenarios:
Today is Jan 2, 1999.
The company is preparing its books to credit an amount X% to all its IUL accounts. What is X?

Scenario 1: If the S&P had paid 1% dividend in 1998, what amount would be credited to the account? What is X?

Scenario 2: If the S&P had paid 5% dividend in 1998, what amount would be credited to the account? What is X?
