The comparable vehicle withoutthe safety feature sells for $28,000. Assume that 2,000 cars of each type are sold.a. How much additional risk is each person who purchased the cheaper carwilling to accept to save $11,000?b. What is the combined dollar amount all individuals who purchased thecheaper car are willing to receive in exchange for the extra risk? How manyadditional lives will be lost for these 2000 individuals?c. What is the statistical value of one life based on this information?
