Step 1

i.

The expected utility of d1 for decision maker B is 0.445 and it is obtained below:

From the given information, U(100)=10 and U(0)=0. The probabilities are 0.4, 0.3 and 0.3.

For decision maker B, the indifference probabilities are 0.60, 0.30 and 0.15.

Step 2

j.

The expected utility of d2 for decision maker B is 0.3...
