## Abstract

A theorem, mathematical method and model are introduced in the present article. Inequalities, allowed and forbidden zones, their relations, consequences, and applications are considered for the expectations of random variables. The method and model are based on the inequalities and zones of the theorem. The article is motivated by the need for theoretical support for the practical analysis performed for the purposes of behavioral economics.
