Expected Value, Risk Measurement and Relative Risk

Hello,

I am looking to compare the work and formulas for the calculation of Expected Value, Absolute Risk Measurement, and Relative Risk for both projects. I have the answers, however, my textbook is horrible in explaining the work.

Project A
Probability Cash Flow
0.5 $200,000
0.5 $300,000

Project B
Probability Cash Flow
0.05 $0
0.80 $200,000
0.15 $400,000

I am looking to compare the work and formulas for the calculation of Expected Value, Absolute Risk Measurement, and Relative Risk for both projects.
Project A Project B
Probability Cash Flow Probability Cash Flow
0.50 $200,000 0.05 $0
0.50 $ 300,000 0.80 $ 200,000
0.15 $ 400,000

Solution:- Calculation of Expected value of each project
If X is a discrete random variable with probability mass function p(x), then the expected value becomes

Project A
Probability Cash flow Expected ...

Solution Summary

The solution related to expected value and other calculations of project A and B is posed.

An expected utility maximizing individual has utility of eno-of-period wealth given by
u(W)= W^(1-y)-1, if y is not equal to 1
ln(W), if y=1
1. Show that this individual has constant relativerisk aversion and decreasing absolute risk aversion.
2. Consider the special case where y=2. Suppose that this individu

Risk Analysis:
Given the following information, calculate the expected value for Firm C's EPS. Data for Firms A and B are as follows: E(EPSA) = $5.10, and oA =$3.61; E(EPSB) = $4.20,
You are given that oC = $4.11. Discuss the relativeriskiness of the three firms' earnings. You are given that oC = $4.11. Discuss the relative r

Given investments A and B with the following risk return characteristics, which of the following is a correct statement that is the best reason to prefer that investment, and why?
Investment A
Expected Return: 12.2%
Std Deviation of Expected Return: 7%
Investment B
Expected Return: 9.8%
Std Deviation of Expected Return

Please help answer the following questions. Provide at least 200 words in your solution.
1. What is the relationship between riskandexpected return?
2. How much financial risk are you willing to take? By that I simply mean would you risk money on something with a potential high return when it also meant you might lose
