In this case, the lottery with probability p* of yielding Value i and probability 1–p* of yielding Value k is the indifference lottery to Value j and Value is the certainty equivalent of the indifference lottery. With these axioms, a decision maker can now quantify the relative preferences of different values. Specifically, the decision maker will first identify two extreme values i and k, one the decision maker prefers the most, such as a huge monetary gain, or even an intangible value like great ecstasy, and the other the decision maker prefers the least, such as a monetary loss, or an intangible value like extreme agony.
