 Ashwin Kini Topic Author Offline Fresh Boarder Posts: 16 Thank you received: 2 Hi Cornelius, I have found similar ones in few tests but unable to understand how the cost is calculated. The figures are updated so I wouldn't have the right answer. The rough calculation goes as follows:- EMV = (5 Million x 50%) + (-2.5 x 30%) = (2.5) + (Not sure how the cost is calculated here) Your e-mail address will never be displayed on the site.

 Suresh Lingam Visitor Hi, The calculation is very simple. Your Question :- If a business has 50% chances to earn \$5 million and 30% chances to lose \$2.5 million What is the EMV? Answer:- EMV = (50/100 * 5 million) + (30/100 * - 2.5 million) EMV = 2500000 + (-750000) EMV = 1750000 If you see I have take -2.5 million is the second part of the formula, because its a loss I hope this will clear your doubt.
