Because’of its excellent product and excellent location, demand has increased by 25% in the last year. On far too many occasions, cus» tomers have not been able to purchase the bread of their choice. Because of the size of the store, no new ovens can be added. At a staff meeting, one employee suggested ways to load the ovens differ- ently so that more loaves of bread can be baked at one time. This new process will require that the ovens be loaded by hand, requiring addi- tional manpower. This is the only thing to be changed. If the bakery makes 1,500 loaves per month with a labor productivity of 2.344 loaves per labor-hour, how many workers will Lackey need to add?
