  • Lemingtons is trying to determine how many Jean Hudson dresses to order for the spring season. Demand for the dresses is assumed to follow a normal distribution with mean 400 and standard deviation 100. The contract between Jean Hudson and Lemingtons works as follows. At the beginning of the season, Lemingtons reserves x units of capacity. Lemingtons must take delivery for at least 0.8x dresses and can, if desired, take delivery on up to x dresses. Each dress sells for 160 and Hudson charges 50 per dress. If Lemingtons does not take delivery on all x dresses, it owes Hudson a 5 penalty for each unit of reserved capacity that is unused. For example, if Lemingtons orders 450 dresses and demand is for 400 dresses, Lemingtons will receive 400 dresses and owe Jean 400(50) + 50(5). How many units of capacity should Lemingtons reserve to maximize its expected profit?
    If a monopolist produces q units, she can charge 400 4q dollars per unit. The variable cost is 60 per unit. a. How can the monopolist maximize her profit? b. If the monopolist must pay a sales tax of 5% of the selling price per unit, will she increase or decrease production (relative to the situation with no sales tax)? c. Continuing part b, use SolverTable to see how a change in the sales tax affects the optimal solution. Let the sales tax vary from 0% to 8% in increments of 0.5%.

    Brady Corporation produces cabinets. Each week, itrequires 90,000 cu ft of processed lumber. The companymay obtain lumber in two ways. First, it may purchaselumber from an outside supplier and then dry it in thesupplier’s kiln. Second, it may chop down logs on its ownland, cut them into lumber at its sawmill, and finally dry thelumber in its own kiln. Brady can purchase grade 1 or grade2 lumber. Grade 1 lumber costs $3 per cu ft and when driedyields 0.7 cu ft of useful lumber. Grade 2 lumber costs $7per cubic foot and when dried yields 0.9 cu ft of usefullumber. It costs the company $3 to chop down a log. Afterbeing cut and dried, a log yields 0.8 cu ft of lumber. Bradyincurs costs of $4 per cu ft of lumber dried. It costs $2.50per cu ft of logs sent through the sawmill. Each week, thesawmill can process up to 35,000 cu ft of lumber.
