• 1. Module 14A EXPECTED VALUE AND STANDARD DEVIATION OBJECTIVE: This program calculates the expected value (cell B56), variance (E56), standard deviation (E58), the coefficient of variation (E60), and the Z-statistic (E62), given a set of possible outcomes and the probability distribution. INPUTS (will appear in blue): 1) Enter up to five probabilities (as decimals) in cells A27 - A31. The total must add up to 1. 2) Enter up to five outcomes (R), corresponding to the probabilities, in cells B27 - B31. 3) If a Z-statistic is desired, enter a value for X in cell B40. The caret ^ in formulas signifies an exponent: x^2 is x squared. RISK CALCULATIONS Sample data have been entered as an example.
