DECISION MAKING 1. A tabular presentation that shows the outcome for each decision alternative under the various states of nature is called: a) a payback period matrix. b) a decision matrix. c) a decision tree. d) a payoff table. 2. The difference between expected payoff under certainty and expected value of the best act without certainty is the: TABLE 16-1 The following payoff table shows profits associated with a set of 3 alternatives under 2 possible states of nature. States A 1 A 2 A 3 1 12 – 2 8 2 4 10 5 where: S 1 is state of nature 1 A 1 is action alternative 1 S 2 is state of nature 2 A 2 is action alternative 2 A 3 is action alternative 3 3. Referring to Table 16-1, if the probability of S 1 is 0.2 and S 2 is 0.8, then the expected monetary value of A 1 is 4. Referring to Table 16-1, if the probability of S 1 is 0.5, then the expected monetary value ( EMV ) for A 1 is

4 Decision Making 5. Referring to Table 16-1, if the probability of S 1 is 0.5, then the expected monetary value ( EMV ) for A 2 is a) 3. b) 4. c) 6.5. d) 8. 6. Referring to Table 16-1, if the probability of S 1 is 0.5, what is the optimal alternative using EMV? 7. Referring to Table 16-1, if the probability of S 1 is 0.5, then the EVPI for the payoff table is
