Clearly explain why the following statement is false:
- Two competing safety projects each cost the same amount. Project A reduces the likelihood of death for 1,000,000 people by 0.000001 (1/1,000,000) each, whereas project B reduces the likelihood of death for 1,000 people by 0.001 (1/1,000) each. If one and only one of these projects is to be undertaken (i.e., they are mutually exclusive and doing neither is not an option), Project A should be preferred since it affects more people.
