A company is considering advertising its new product on TV on Super Bowl Sunday.

Let d1, d2 and d3 represent its decision to purchase one, two or three 30-second commercials respectively.
Dependent on whether the game is S1 = “Dull,” S2 =“Average”, S3 =“Above average,” or S4 = “Exciting,” their probabilities and profits are as follows:

 S1 S2 S3 S4 Probability 0.1 0.3 0.4 0.2 d1 5 12 10 8 d2 -5 6 12 12 d3 7 14 -6 13

The expected pay-off of the best decision would be:

Select one:

a. 7.6

b. 9.7

c. 12.3

d. 8.3

Multiply probabilities with each alternatives and select the best d with maximum expecetd value

 s1 s2 s3 Probability 0.1 0.3 0.4 0.2 d1 5 12 10 8 d2 -5 6 12 12 d3 7 14 -6 13

For d1,expected pay off is  5*0.1+12*0.3+10*0.4+8*0.2=  9.7

For d2,expected pay off is -5*0.1+6*0.3+12*0.4+12*0.2=   8.5

For d3,expected pay off is 7*0.1+14*0.3-6*0.4+13*0.2=5.1

expected value is maximum for d1

best decision=d1

and expected payoff =9.7

The expected pay-off of the best decision would be:9.7
