cost savings under the new contract would be $3,312.00. 18,400 patties X $.18 savings = $3,312.00 8. If hamburger sales remain stable at 12 cases per week during this period, how many hamburgers will Charlie have remaining in inventory at the end of 13 weeks? If hamburger sales remain the same at the end of the 13 weeks Charlie would have 5.920 patties left. 50 cases – 12 cases in week one = 38 cases left over. 15 cases – 12 cases = 3 cases left per week for the remaining 12 weeks. 3 x 12 = 36 cases. 36 cases + 38 cases = 74 cases. 74 cases X 80 ct = 5,920 patties left. 9. If hamburger sales remain stable at 12 cases per week into the future, how many weeks will it take to sell the remaining hamburgers? (Round to the nearest week.) If hamburger sales remain the same at 12 cases per week it would take 6 weeks for Charlie to sell the remaining patties. 74 cases / 12 cases per week = 6.16 weeks, rounded off to 6 weeks. 10. If Joe can figure out a way to sell 14 cases a week, how many weeks will it take to sell the entire new vendor inventory? (Round to the nearest week.) If Joe can figure out a way to sell 14 cases per week it will take a total of 16 weeks to sell the entire inventory. 230 cases total / 14 cases per week = 16.43 weeks, rounded to 16 weeks. 11. Beyond the price per patty savings, what factors should Joe consider when advising Charlie whether or not to take the new deal? Beyond the price per patty savings Joe should also consider the freshness of the product. Will the patties still be servable after being in his freezer for all those weeks? Also storage is a factor. Does he have enough storage space to take in 50 cases all at once and to keep adding to that each week? Working on a first in, first out rotation is there enough room, and time to

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
