The dealer's probability estimates for the survey results based on the number of units demanded are:
P(F | D = 0) = .1 P(F | D = 2) .3 P(U | D = 0) = .8 P(U | D = 2) = .1
P(F | D = 1) = .2 P(F | D = 3) .9 P(U | D = 1) = .3 P(U | D = 3) = .1
a. What is the dealer's optimal decision without conducting the survey?
b. What is the EVPI?
c. Based on the survey results what is the optimal decision strategy when the survey result is Favorable (F)?
