For suppose that the chief executive officer may hire a consulting firm for a fee of $725,000. The consulting firm will advise the CEO about the possibility of success of the merger. This consulting firm is known to have correctly predicted the outcomes of 89% of all successful mergers and the outcomes of 97% of all unsuccessful ones. What is the optimal decision?

For, give a highest-posterior-density credible set of probability 0.80 for the population mean. For, a second sample of 60 people gives a sample mean of $27,050. Update the distribution of the population mean, and give a new HPD credible set of probability 0.95 for . What is a payoff table? What is a decision tree? Can a payoff table be used in decision making without a decision tree?

To continue, determine a credible set for the proportion of defective items with probability close to 0.95. Interpret the meaning of the credible set. For, suppose that the engineer collects a second sample of 20 items and finds that 5 items are defective. Update the probability distribution of the population proportion you computed in to incorporate the new information.

For the situation in, suppose the designer is offered expert opinion about the new fall styles for a price of $300,000. Should she buy the advice? Explain why or why not. A quality control engineer believes that the proportion of defective items in a production process is a random variable with a probability distribution that is approximated as follows: The engineer collects a random sample of...

What is a utility function? What are the advantages of using a utility function? What are the characteristics of the utility function of a risk-averse individual? Of a risk taker? What can you say about the risk attitude of the investor in Example 15–5? Choose a few hypothetical monetary payoffs, and determine your own utility function. From the resulting curve, draw a conclusion about your...

For problem 15–23, suppose that before deciding whether to advertise on television, the company can test the commercial. The test costs $300,000 and has the following reliability. If sales volume would go up by $20 million, the test would indicate this with probability 0.96. It would wrongly indicate that sales would be $10 million more with probability 0.03, and wrongly indicate that sales...
