4. If Evergreen Fertilizer Company increases its advertising expenditures by $14,000 per year, what effect will the increase have on the breakeven volume computed in Problem 2?
5. Annie McCoy, a student at Tech, plans to open a hot dog stand inside Tech’s football stadium during home games. There are seven home games scheduled for the upcoming season. She must pay the Tech athletic department a vendor’s fee of $2,500 for the season. Her stand and other equipment will cost her $3,100 for the season. She estimates that each hot dog she sells will cost her $0.35. She has talked to friends at other universities who sell hot dogs at games. Based on their information and the athletic department’s forecast that each game will sell out, she anticipates that she will sell approximately 2,000 hot dogs during each game.
a. What price should she charge for a hot dog in order to break even?
b. What factors might occur during the season that would alter the volume sold and thus the breakeven price Annie might charge?
6. The College of Business at Kerouac University is planning to begin an online MBA program. The initial startup cost for computing equipment, facilities, course development, and staff recruitment and development is $360,000.The college plans to charge tuition of $17,000 per student per year.

7. The following probabilities for grades in management science have been determined based on past records: Grade  Probability

A  0.15 
B  0..25 
C  0..38 
D  0..12 
F  0.10 
1.00 
The grades are assigned on a 4.0 scale, where an A is a 4.0, a B a 3.0, and so on. Determine the expected grade and variance for the course.
8. An investment firm is considering two alternative investments, A and B, under two possible future sets of economic conditions, good and poor. There is a .60 probability of good economic conditions occurring and a .40 probability of poor economic conditions occurring. The expected gains and losses under each economic type of conditions are shown in the following table: Economic Conditions  
Investment  Good  Poor 
A  $350,000  $350,000 
B  120,000  70,000 
Using the expected value of each investment alternative, determine which should be selected.
9. The weight of bags of fertilizer is normally distributed, with a mean of 50 pounds and a standard deviation of 7 pounds. What is the probability that a bag of fertilizer will weigh between 45 and 55 pounds?
10. The Polo Development Firm is building a shopping center. It has informed renters that their rental spaces will be ready for occupancy in 19 months. If the expected time until the shopping center is completed is estimated to be 16 months, with a standard deviation of 4 months, what is the probability that the renters will not be able to occupy in 19 months?
11. The manager of the local National Video Store sells videocassette recorders at discount prices. If the store does not have a video recorder in stock when a customer wants to buy one, it will lose the sale because the customer will purchase a recorder from one of the many local competitors. The problem is that the cost of renting warehouse space to keep enough recorders in inventory to meet
all demand is excessively high. The manager has determined that if 90% of customer demand for
recorders can be met, then the combined cost of lost sales and inventory will be minimized. The manager has estimated that monthly demand for recorders is normally distributed, with a mean of 180 recorders and a standard deviation of 60. Determine the number of recorders the manager should order each month to meet 90% of customer demand.
