start to think about making some money for yourself. You look into buying equipment
that prints Tshirts and ﬁnd that there are two options. Option 1 costs more up front, but
it takes less time to print each Tshirt, resulting in a lower variable cost. Option 2 costs
less up front, but takes more time to print each Tshirt, resulting in a higher variable cost.
The basic information is below: Fixed Cost Variable Cost (per Unit)
Option 1 $10,000 $3 Option 2 $2,000 $7 1. What would the cost of each option be if you sold 500 Tshirts? Which option would
you choose? <

some probabilities to the demand. You predict the following: TShirt Sales Probability
1 .000 25%
2,500 45% 3, 500 30% Based on this prediction, draw the decision tree for Options 1 and 2. Make sure to draw
and calculate each of the branches on the decision tree (i.e. cost of Option 1 for 1,000,
2,500 and 3,500). Also calculate the expected value (demand outcome) of the two
branches. Based on the expected value, would you choose Option 1 or Option 2? 6
