1. Problem 12: (4 points) a. EOQ = = = 79 units (1 point) b. Total annual cost = (79/2)(5) + (1560/79)(10) = $197.50 + $197.47 = $394.97 (1 point) c. Reorder point = R = dL = (1560 bags/year)(1 year/52)(1 week) = 30 units (1 point) d.

Problem 14: (3 points) a. 1 point EOQ at price $14.50/bag = = 92.8 bags (not a feasible quantity at the given price break) EOQ at price $16.00/bag = = 88.3 bags (not a feasible quantity at given price break) b. 1 point Total cost at Q = 390 (3-month supply): = (390/2)(16 x 0.25) + (1560/390)(10) + (16)(1560) = $25,780 Total cost at Q = 780 (6-month supply): = (780/2)(14.50 x 0.25) + (1560/780)(10) + (14.50)(1560) = $24,053.75 c.
