Question:

# Using the following three-point estimates, evaluate the expected value using the beta distribution formula: Optimistic = 25, Pessimistic = 50, Most Likely = 35.

A 36
explanation

Expected value can be calculated using a triangular distribution (simple average) or beta distribution (weighted average). The three-point estimating formula that uses a beta distribution is as follows: (Optimistic + Pessimistic + (4 × Most Likely)) ÷ 6. Plug in the values provided to calculate the following: ($25 +$50 + ($35 × 4)) ÷ 6 =$35.8, or 36 when rounded to the nearest whole number.

I’m not sure how this app is accurate, simple & effective along with FREE? But I’m so grateful. Getting professional qualifications can be so expensive & daunting to tackle. This test taking, review-type app has been so extremely helpful. The structure of the app is so intuitive. It definitely helps with giving you an understanding of why something is wrong / right & making sure it sticks. Absolutely love it & I'm so grateful.
