Overview:

Steve’s Mountain Bicycle Shop is considering three options for its facility next year. Steve can expand his current shop, move to a larger facility, or make no change. With a good market, the annual payoff would be \$76,000 if he expands, \$90,000 if he moves, and \$40,000 if he does nothing. With an average market, his payoffs will be \$30,000, \$41,000, and \$15,000, respectively. With a poor market, his payoff will be –\$17,000, –\$28,000, and \$4,000, respectively. This assignment will explore Maximax, Minimax, and Maximin using this scenario for Steve’s Mountain Bicycle Shop.
