Use probability to evaluate outcomes of decisions


(+) Weigh the possible outcomes of a decision by assigning probabilities to payoff values and finding expected values.


Find the expected payoff for a game of chance. For example, find the expected winnings from a state lottery ticket or a game at a fast- food restaurant.


Evaluate and compare strategies on the basis of expected values. For example, compare a high-deductible versus a low-deductible automobile insurance policy using various, but reasonable, chances of having a minor or a major accident.


(+) Use probabilities to make fair decisions (e.g., drawing by lots, using a random number generator).


(+) Analyze decisions and strategies using probability concepts (e.g., product testing, medical testing, pulling a hockey goalie at the end of a game).
