The distributor of a machine for cytogenics has developed a new model. The company estimates that when it is introduced into the market, it will be very successful with a probability 0.6, moderately successful with a probability 0.3, and not successful with probability 0.1. The estimated yearly profit associated with the model being very successful is $15 million and being moderately successful is $5 million; not successful would result in a loss of $500,000.
