x is a random variable with realizations x1 and x2, x1 < x2. u is the utility function. u is increasing and strictly concave. p = prob{x = x1}, 1 p = prob{x = x2} Model Setup

Looking at it Graphically

Larger D: Base = x2 - x1 Height = u(x2) u(x1). Smaller D: Base = E(x) - x1 Height = ? E(x) - x1 = px1 + (1 p)x2 x1 = (1 p)(x2 x1).

Larger D: Base = x2 - x1 Height = u(x2) u(x1). Smaller D: Base = (1 p)(x2 x1). Smaller D: Height = (1 p)[u(x2) u(x1)].
