Table 2 Calculations to obtain the final priorities

From: Comparison of patient preferences for fecal immunochemical test or colonoscopy using the analytic hierarchy process

  Accuracy (0.625) Complication (0.239) Preparation (0.136) Final priorities
FIT 0.25 0.667 0.75 0.418
Colonoscopy 0.75 0.333 0.25 0.582
  1. Final priority of FIT = 0.625 × 0.25 + 0.239 × 0.667 + 0.136 × 0.75 = 0.418.
  2. Final priority of Colonoscopy = 0.625 × 0.75 + 0.239 × 0.333 + 0.136 × 0.25 = 0.582.
