**bobpursley**, Monday, August 10, 2009 at 10:30amOF course it is not correct. Expected Value is in dollars.

EV=1/3(40,000) + 1/3 (3) + 1/3 (50)

13,333.33333+1+16.66666667= 13,351 is this correct?

Thanks.

Do not forget your units. 13,351 is the correct value, but your answer should be $13,351.00
