2. Problem 10 chapter 2 in book
3. Billy’s bakery bakes fresh bagels each morning. The daily demand for bagels is a random variable with a distribution estimated from prior experiences given by: Number of bagels sold in one day Probability 0 0.05 5 0.10 10 0.10 15 0.20 20 0.25 25 0.15 30 0.10 35 0.05 The Bagels cost Billy’s 8 cents to make, and they are sold for 35 cents each.
