H Dangi, FMS 24 Question for Discussion A business man has two investments A and B available to him: but he lacks the capital to undertake both of them simultaneously. He can choose to take A first and then stop, or if A is successful then take B, or vice versa. The probability of success of A is 0.7 while for B is 0.4 .Both require an initial outlay of Rs 2000 and both return nothing if it fails. Successful completion of A will return Rs 3000 while B will return Rs 5000 .Draw the decision tree and determine the best strategy.
