price, variable cost, and the annual sales volume. The product has a life of only one year. The

management has the data on these three factors as under:

Selling

Price(Rs.)

Probability Variable

Cost (Rs.)

Probability Sales

Volume(Units)

Probability

3 0.2 1 0.3 2,000 0.3

4 0.5 2 0.6 3,000 0.3

5 0.3 3 0.1 5,000 0.4
