Expected Monetary value

Postby riyadhmuhammed Mon Jul 10, 2017 9:02 am

Q : You are managing a software engineering project when two team members come to you with a conflict. The lead developer has identified an important project risk: you have a subcontractor that may not deliver on time. The team estimate there is a 40% chance that the subcontractor will fail to deliver. If it happens, it will cost an additional $15250 to pay engineers to rewrite the work, and the delay will cost the company $ 20000 in lost business. Another team member points out an opportunity to save money an another area to offset the risk: if an existing component can be adapted, it will save the project $ 4500 in engineering costs. There is a 65 % probability that the team can take advantage of that opportunity. What is the expected monetary value (EVM) of these two things?

A . $ -14100
B. $ 6100
C. $ 11175
D. $ 39750

Ans is C.

Kindly help for the calculation
