Refer to Problem 1. Suppose after a certain amount of discussion, the contractor is able to subjectively assess the probabilities of low and high demand: P (low) = .3 and P (high) = .7.
(a) Determine the expected profit of each alternative. Which alternative is best? Why?
(b) Analyze the problem using a decision tree. Show the expected profit of each alternative on the tree.
(c) Compute the expected value of perfect information. How could the contractor use this knowledge?
