probability of correctness as a correction factor

I am stuck on trying to understand what seems like a simple problem!

"A store manager predicts that his sales for a certain day of the week will be $\$150,000.00$. An independent assessor following the store's day-to-day sales says that the probability of the store's sales for this same day being$>=\$150,000$ is 0.35. Therefore, what is a more reasonable estimate for the store's sales for the day?"

The only thing I could think of was to compute $150000\cdot0.35= 52500$, but I don't know why this should be correct. Any ideas?

So I'd add $48,750 to your conservative upside estimate. So basically 100k average revenues • Hi. Thanks for your answer! Could you however please explain, how you came up with "I'd add$48,750 to your conservative upside estimate"? – Thomas Moore May 10 '18 at 23:29
