# Expected value;standard deviation;coefficient of variation

Problems involve:
expected value
standard deviation
coefficient of variation
pv
fv
pva
fva

(see attached)

I need these problems done using excel and showing how the answers were calculated. The answers are at the end of the attached problem set.

I need the formulas to each problem in an EXCEL spreadsheet as well as explanations as to what the answers mean in the context of the problem.

Describe and justify each assumption you have made

Explain, support and justify every statement you make

Support your conclusions with evidence such as facts and statistics from reliable sources, or a well-reasoned logical argument.
