A player's range is decided in his first decision.

In the first pic the BB's range will be the top 17.5% of hands. He will get those hands 100% of the time.

In the second pic the BB's range is all hands. He will play 17.5% of them and fold the rest.

In the second pic the EV of the top 17.5% of hands is about $164, the EV of folding is 0. The total EV will be $164*0.175+$0*0.825=$29.
