4. Linda is uncertain about the estimates for some project activity durations. To improve the estimates, she uses a three-point estimating technique to define an approximate range for each activity. She estimates the expected duration of each activity by calculating a weighted average of the most likely scenario, an optimistic or best-case scenario, and a pessimistic or worse-case scenario. Linda is relying on a an estimating technique known as
