300

Step-by-step explanation:

Given In a business venture a man can take profit of rs 3000 with a probability of 0.4 or have a loss of rs 1500 with a probability of 0.6. His expected profit will be

We know that P = 0.4, and profit = 3000

Given P = 0.6 and loss = 1500

When P(x) = 0.4, x = 3000

When P(x) = 0.6, x = 1500

We get 0.4 x 3000 = 1200

and 0.6 x 1500 = 900

E(x) = ∑ x P(x)

= 1200 – 900

= 300
