The Best Wheels Bicycle Company produces bicycles in different styles for boys and girls, in heights of 26 inches of 20 inches, and with 10 speeds, 3 speeds, or 1 speed.

a. How many different kinds of bicycles does Best Wheels make?

b. Construct a modular bill of material for Best Wheels (one level). Assume that bike sales are equally split between boys and girls, 26 inch bikes are preferred two to one to 20 inch bikes, and 3 speed bikes account for only 20% of sales. The remaining sales are divided equally between 10 speed and 1 speed bikes.

c. If bicycle sales are expected to reach 10,000 over the holiday shopping season, how many 26 inch bikes should Best Wheels plan to produce? How many 10 speed bikes?
