Prediction of Campylobacter level at 5 weeks (killing)

Logs Level Probability Bar Expected Utility

The expected level of campylobacter is logs. The campylobacter level is computed as the weighted average using the middle points of the intervals listed in the table above. The expected value at five weeks is and the expect cost is . This means that the expected profit is .
