Self-Test – Decision Tree 10. Bayes’ theorem is used to revise probabilities. The new (revised) probabilities are called a. prior probabilities. b. sample probabilities. c. survey probabilities. d. posterior probabilities. 11. On a decision tree, at each state-of-nature node, EMV is selected. together. probability is selected. 12. The EVSI without sample information from the EMV with sample information. value of perfect information. information assuming no cost for the information minus the EMV without sample information. 13. The efficiency of sample information without SI) expressed as a percentage. percentage. information were perfect. and the maximum EMV. 14. On a decision tree, once the tree has been drawn and the payoffs and probabilities have been placed on the tree, the analysis (computing EMVs and selecting the best alternative) a. is done by working backward (starting on the right and moving to the left). b. is done by working forward (starting on the left and moving to the right). c. is done by starting at the top of the tree and moving down.

    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.
