- 1 - Homework #2 Solution Set Problem 1 Solution: (a) Decision Outcome EMV Gas is discovered Gas is not discovered Sell exploration rights 1,980,000 180,000 1,260,000 Develop the field herself 5,700,000 300,000 3,300,000 (b) The landowner maximizes her expected gain by deciding not to sell the exploration rights and to develop the field herself. The optimal expected payoff associated with this decision is $3,300,000. (c) (d) EVPI = EMV with (free) perfect information EMV without information = (0.6)(5,700,000) + (0.4)(180,000) 3,300,000 = 3,420,000 + 72,000 3,300,000 = $192,000 (e) See Landowner_Gas_Exploration _39_Solution.xlsx

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
