1. I am considering a security with the following possible rates of return:

Probability Return (%)
0.30 9.5
0.15 12.0
0.25 15.0
0.30 16.0

Please calculate the expected rate of return and the standard deviation of the returns (round to the nearest dollar).

Probability Return (%)
0.15 6
0.30 5
0.40 11
0.15 14

Please calculate the expected rate of return and its standard deviation. One year Treasury bills are currently paying 8.9%. Should you invest in the above security?
