    Given the following table:
    1. Draw the network diagram
    2. Determine the critical path
    3. Calculate the expected duration and variance for each acitivity
    4. Calculate the expected duration and variance of the critical path
    5. Find the probability of completing the project in:
    a. Less than 22 weeks
    b. More than 25 weeks
    c. Between 23 and 28 weeks

    Time Estimates (weeks)
    Activity Immediate Predecessors Optimistic Most Likely Pessimistic
    A - 5 11 14
    B - 3 3 9
    C - 6 10 14
    D A,B 3 5 7
    E B 4 6 11
    F C 6 8 13
    G D,E 2 4 6
    H F,G 3 3 9
