She feels that script #1 has a 70 percent chance of earning about \$10,000,000 over the long run, but a 30 percent chance of losing \$2,000,000. If this movie is successful (positive earnings), then a sequel will also be produced, with an 80 percent chance of earning \$5,000,000, but a 20 percent chance of losing \$1,000,000. On the other hand, she feels that script # 2 has a 60 percent chance of earning \$12,000,000 but a 40 percent chance of losing \$3,000,000. If successful, its sequel would have a 50 percent chance of earning \$8,000,000, but a 50 percent chance of losing \$4,000,000. Of course, in either case, if the original movie were a “flop” i.e., is losing money, then no sequel would be produced. Use “S” for successful and “F” for flop or failure. Draw a decision tree to analyze this problem and answer the following questions. (a). What is the expected value of selecting script #1? (b). What is the expected value of selecting script #2?
