I was wondering if someone could help me answer question 1A?
ASSIGNMENT 1 (MKTG 347) Total Points = 100 Neatness and Visual Quality of Written Presentation = 5 bonus points (You may cut and paste MS excel outputs, if necessary, onto a single MS word file containing your answers. However, please report the answers to your questions separately on the main word document. Do not attach separate excel files) 1. XZW Inc. is a company that follows a proactive new product development strategy. The typical costs and likelihood of success at each stage of the proactive process have been documented in the table below. Use the table to answer the following questions: a. Compute the overall probability of success at the start of a new project (10 points) b. Fill in the yellow cells with the appropriate numbers (10 points) c. What is the expected total cost incurred by XZW to launch one successful product in the market? ( 10 points) (For all parts of this question, show your detailed calculations separately) Table 1.
