location. Thus. overtime might be necessary at times. The following table gives the totalmonthly cost (in $1,000s) for each possible location under each demand possibility. Theprobabilities for the demand levels have been determined to be 20% for low demand, 30%for medium demand, and 50% for high demand.DEMAND IS LOWDEMAND ISMEDIUMDEMAND IS HIGHArdmore, OK85110150Sweetwater, TX90100120Lake Charles, LA110120130Demand (‘1000)MAXIMUM IN AROWMINIMUM IN AROWLOWMEDIUMHIGH(Best cost)(Worst cost)Ardmore, OK8511015085150Sweetwater, TX9010012090120Lake Charles,LA110120130110130Probability0.20.30.5a)Which location would be selected based on the optimistic criterion?.
