1. ### Question 16 - Calculation of Most Likely Duration

4

Excellent set of questions. However, I believe solution to Question 16 is incorrect.
Question:
Using beta distribution, find out the most likely activity duration, in a project with an expected duration of 5 weeks, an optimistic duration of 4 weeks and a pessimistic duration of 8 weeks.
Answer provided is 5.33 weeks which would be correct if the question was to compute Expected Duration (tE) based on tM, tO, tP.
In this case, following parameters are already provided in the question:
Expected Duration tE = 5
Optimistic Duration tO = 4
Pessimistic Duration tP = 8
We need to compute most likely Duration now using BETA distribution:
tE = (tO+4xtM+tP)/6
Hence, tM = (6xtE – tO – tP)/4 = 4.5 weeks

Please review this and clarify. It is a very good trick question, but answer provided is incorrect
