Famous Albert prides himself on being the Cookie King of the West. Small, freshly baked cookies are the specialty of his shop. Famous Albert has asked for help to determine the number of cookies he should make each day. From an analysis of past demand, he estimates demand for cookies as
DEMAND | PROBABILITY OF DEMAND | |
2,100 | dozen | 0.05 |
2,300 | 0.08 | |
2,500 | 0.23 | |
2,700 | 0.30 | |
2,900 | 0.12 | |
3,100 | 0.03 | |
3,300 | 0.19 | |
Each dozen sells for $0.72 and costs $0.48, which includes handling and transportation. Cookies that are not sold at the end of the day are reduced to $0.32 and sold the following day as day-old merchandise.
a. Compute the expected profit or loss for each cookie making decision quantity. (Round your answer to the nearest whole number. Enter expected losses with a negative sign.)
Cookies Baked (Dozen) | Probability of Demand | Expected Profit/Loss | |
2,100 | 0.05 | $ | |
2,300 | 0.08 | ||
2,500 | 0.23 | ||
2,700 | 0.30 | ||
2,900 | 0.12 | ||
3,100 | 0.03 | ||
3,300 | 0.19 | ||
b. Based on your answers to part a., what is the optimal number of cookies to make?
Optimal number of cookies | dozen |
c. By using marginal analysis, what is the optimal number of cookies to make?
Optimal number of cookies | dozen |

Use Table 8.1, a computer, or a calculator to answer the following. Suppose a candidate for public office is favored by only 47% of the voters. If a sample survey randomly selects 2,500 voters, the percentage in the sample who favor the candidate can be thought of as a measurement from a normal curve with a mean of 47% and a standard deviation of 1%. Based on this information, how often (as a %) would such a survey show that...
