(d) Make up a fifth lottery and compute its expected utility value. 3) Consider the following four lotteries: Y = {$400, $300, $200, $100, $0} p A = ( .75, 0, .25, 0, 0) p B = ( .6, 0, 0, 0, .4) p C = ( 0, 0, .55, 0, .45) p D = ( .35, .18, .15, .2, .12) . Jiong is willing to buy or sell lottery A for $300, buy or sell lottery B for $200, and buy or sell lottery C for $100. [NOTE: A person would be willing to buy or sell an item for $x if and only that person is indifferent between having the item and having $x for sure.] Compute the probability α such that Jiong is indifferent between lottery p D and L( α ). 4) Dutta, chapter 27: 19 5) Dutta, chapter 27: 20 6) Plot your preferences on L (Y) = {$100, $50, $0}....
