a. Find Carolina's monthly order quantity for the product if the company bases monthly orders on the expected value of the monthly demand.
b. Find the company's gain or loss in a month if it places an order based on the answer to part (a) and the actual demand for the item is 300 units.

a. Calculation:
The data represents the probability distributions of company's monthly demand for the past two years.
The formula for the expected value of a discrete random variable is,
\(\displaystyle{E}{\left({x}\right)}=\mu\)
\(\displaystyle=\sum{x}\cdot{f{{\left({x}\right)}}}\)
The expected monthly order quantity is obtained using the following table:
\begin{array}{|c|c|} \hline x&f(x)&x \cdot f(x) \\ \hline 300&0.20&60 \\ \hline 400&0.30&120\\ \hline 500&0.35&175\\ \hline 600&0.15&90\\ \hline Total&1.00&445\\ \hline \end{array}
Thus, the monthly order quantity should be 445 units.

b. Calculation:
The assumption is that each unit demanded generates $70 in revenue and that each unit ordered costs $50.
It is expected that the monthly order quantity should be 445 units. Each unit ordered costs $50. Thus, the cost is calculated as, \(\displaystyle{445}\times\${50}=\${22},{250}\).
The actual demand for the item is 300 units and each unit demanded generates $70 in revenue. Thus the revenue is calculated as, \(\displaystyle{300}\times\${70}=\${21},{000}\).
Here, the cost is greater than the revenue and the company has a loss of \(\displaystyle\${1},{250}{\left(=\${22},{250}-\${21},{000}\right)}\) in a month if it places an order based on the answer to part (a) and the actual demand for the item is 300 units.

A quantity surveyor was asked to study the weight of beef in a particular company. He measured 10 beef pies and their mean weight was 180 g and the standard deviation was 40 g. What is the upper limit of the \(\displaystyle{95}\%\) confidence interval for the variance of the company (ie upper bound of a \(\displaystyle{95}\%\) confidence interval for the variance)?
It can be assumed that the weight of the beef follows a normal distribution.
