If they enact an experimental new program, called Lagoon Preservation Project (?LPP?), then there is a 50% chance that it will be successful, yielding a societal benefit of $70,000. There is a 50% chance it will not be successful, causing further harm to the lagoons, yielding a societal cost of $150,000;? Enacting LPP will cost $10,000;Assume all costs and benefits above are expressed in present values.;a. Which option has the higher expected benefit to society?
