The auctioneer increases the bids by increments that usually do not exceed ten percent of the previous bid. When a sole bidder remains, the Auctioneer brings down the hammer and declares the lot sold [for the amount of the highest bid].'' Based on that description, what type of auction does the auction house run? a. descending-price (or Dutch) auction b. ascending-price (or English) auction c. Vickrey auction d. first price, sealed-bid auction 6 points QUESTION 4 What is expected utility? a. probability weighted average of possible profits b. an evenly weighted average of possibility profits c. a probability weighted average of possible utility levels d. the profit from a given decision 6 points QUESTION 5Suppose an investment has three possible outcomes. There is a 40% chance that it brings a profit of 22,500. There is a 30% chance that it brings a profit of 10,000. There is a 30% chance that is brings a profit of 0. What is the expected profit (or expected value of the profit) for this investment? 7 points QUESTION 6Continue to suppose an investment has three possible outcomes. There is a 40% chance that it brings a profit of 22,500. There is a 30% chance that it brings a profit of 10,000. There is a 30% chance that is brings a profit of 0. Suppose a decision makers utility function can be described by U(w)=w^0.5. What is the expected utility of this investment? 3 points QUESTION 7Continue to suppose an investment has three possible outcomes. There is a 40% chance that it brings a profit of 22,500. There is a 30% chance that it brings a profit of 10,000. There is a 30% chance that is brings a profit of 0. Suppose a decision makers utility function can be described by U(w)=w^0.5. What is this investment's certainty equivalence for this decision maker?
