Under frost-free conditions, Cal Cultivators expects its strawberry crop to have a $60,000 market value. An unprotected crop subject to frost has an expected market value of$40,000. If Cal protects the strawberries against frost, then the market value of the crop is still expected to be $60,000 under frost-free conditions and$90,000 if there is a frost. What must be the probability of a frost for Cal to be indifferent to spending $10,000 for frost protection? .167 .200 .250 .333 .350 SVP Joined: 29 Aug 2007 Posts: 2492 Followers: 68 Kudos [?]: 735 [0], given: 19 Re: Crops [#permalink] ### Show Tags 07 Nov 2007, 00:17 Hayabusa wrote: Under frost-free conditions, Cal Cultivators expects its strawberry crop to have a$60,000 market value.

x (90,000 - 40,000) + (1-x) (60000 - 60000) = 10000
x = 10000/50000
x = 0.2 or 20%.
