Given the following conditional value table, determine the best alternatives under Maximax, Maximin, and Equally Likely.
Low 
Moderate 
High 

A  $40  $100  $60 
B  $85  $60  $70 
C  $65  $75  $70 
Which is the best alternative using the Maximax criterion? And why?
Which is the best alternative using the Maximin criterion? And why?
Which is the best alternative using the Equally Likely criterion? And why?
Low 
Moderate 
High 
Maximum  Minimum  Average  
A  $40  $100  $60  100  40  66.67 
B  $85  $60  $70  85  60  71.67 
C  $65  $75  $70  75  65  70 
Under Maximax criteria , maximum among these three will be selected and $100 is maximum. Hence A with Moderate should be selected.
Under Maximin criteria, maximum among the minimum value is $65. Hence C with Low should be selected.
Under Equally Likely criterion, maximum average among these three is $71.67.Hence B should be selected.
