A bicycle shop owner is deciding which products to stock. His distributor will give him a deal if he buys more of the same kind of bike. The payoff table shows monthly sales for a high-end bike (selling at $950) or a moderately priced bike (selling at $500). Based on past experience, the shop owner makes the following assumption about the demand for the high-end bike. Demand will be low, moderate, or high with probabilities 0.3, 0.5, and 0.2, respectively. He also assumes that if demand is low for the high-end bike, it will be higher for the moderately priced bike.
