a. Expected cash flow is calculated by multiply a probability to a cash flow.
Expected cash flow of Project A
For year 1
E (CF) = \$0 (0.18) + \$50000(0.64) + \$100000(0.18)
= \$50000
For year 2
E (CF) = \$0 (0.08) + \$50000 (0.84) + \$100000 (0.08)
= \$50000
Standard deviation for Project A
For year 1
&#963; y1 = &#8730; (\$0 - \$50000)^2*(0.18)+ (\$50000 - \$50000)^2(0.64) + (\$100000 - \$50000)^2(0.18)
= \$30000
For year 2
&#963; y2 = &#8730; (\$0 - \$50000)^2*(0.0.08)+ (\$50000 - \$50000)^2(0.84) + (\$100000 - \$50000)^2(0.08)
= \$20000
Coefficient of variation = V = &#963; / ...
