If the hospital runs out of blood during the 21-day period, it makes an emergency purchase of blood at a cost of $50/pint. Demand for blood over the 21-day period is as follows: Demand (pints) 100 125 150 175 200 Probability 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.3 0.1 a. Set up the decision table. b. Find the best decision. 2.
