Not Thirsty and Purchasing One CAN

Not Thirsty and Purchasing a 12 pack of CANs

Create a matrix in which you compared every alternative to all of the other alternatives, once.

In terms of the reduced full factorial you need to create two questionnaires by listing all of the possible attribute combinations (one when the product is being sold for \$.25/50 per can and one when the product is being sold for \$2.00/\$4.00 per 12 pack.

3) questionnaires asking for degree of liking of listed items
