Demand at each particular exchange rate, Financial Management

The usual number of passengers using the service is dependent upon the demand at each particular exchange rate.

At 1·52 Euro/£ expected demand = (0·33·)(500 + 460 + 420) = 460

At 1·54 Euro/£ expected demand = (0·33·) (550 + 520 + 450) = 506·67

At 1·65 Euro/£ expected demand = (0·33·) (600 + 580 +500) = 560

The expected demand is so

= (0·2) (460) + (0.5) (506·67) + (0·3) (560)

= 92 + 253·33 + 168

= 513·3 per train

= 1026·7 per day
