3) But using monetary figures for the value of life the government itself has used, the expected value
of a mortality risk of 1 in 100,000 is $60.
The effect of price changes on individual expected values
is summarized as:
A risk seeker would use maximax, a risk avoider would use maximin and the risk-neutral decisionmaker would use expected values

While it is true that setting expected values
can never be perfect, the methods of deriving values can be improved through the application of technologies.
approach: The expected value
of the cost of an environmental event is the estimate of the probability weighted-average over the range of all possible values where there are multiple possible outcomes, each with its own probability of occurrence.
One may either assume that the laboratory expected values
In this section the expected value
and variance of total warranty cost are derived and special cases are considered, in which failure process and running behaviour follow well-known Poisson process and normal distribution.
Proof: Since the expected value
of producer's surplus net of cost of entry is zero, the expected value
of total surplus equals that of consumer's surplus.
Now, take the expected value
of RIV: (5) [Mathematical Expression Omitted]
From the expected value
of the distribution, represented by t, in the PERT literature, an equation is derived for computing the estimated expected value
of the elapsed time required for an activity.
Acknowledges that expected values
and probabilities could produce poor predictions - surprises may occur.
