Question

**Styline Menswear ordered
short-sleeve shirts for $23 each and long-sleeve shirts for $28.50
each from Tommy Hilfiger. If the total order amounted to $9,862.50
for 375 shirts, how many short-sleeve were ordered?**

Answer #1

Given that,

The price of one short-sleeve shirt = $23

Also the price of one long-sleeve shirt = $28.50

Let the total number of short-sleeve shirts ordered is X and the total number of long-sleeve shirts ordered is Y.

Since the total number of shirts is 375.

So X+Y=375.............(1)

Also the total orderd amount is $9,862.50.

So 23X + 28.50Y = 9862.50...........(2)

Multiplying equation (1) by 28.50,we get

28.50 × X + 28.50 × Y = 28.50 × 375

28.50X + 28.50Y = 10687.5.............(3)

Now subtracting equation (2) by equation (3),we get

28.50X + 28.50Y - 23X - 28.50Y = 10687.5 - 9862.50

5.50X = 825

X = 825/5.50

X = 150

So the total number of short-sleeve shirts ordered =150.

The Shirt Works sells a large variety of tee shirts and
sweatshirts. Steve Hooper, the owner, is thinking of expanding his
sales by hiring high school students, on a commission basis, to
sell sweatshirts bearing the name and mascot of the local high
school.
These sweatshirts would have to be ordered from the manufacturer
six weeks in advance, and they could not be returned because of the
unique printing required. The sweatshirts would cost Hooper $17.00
each with a minimum...

An online clothing retailer sells men’s white undershirts. In
each week, the demand for these undershirts has a normal
distribution with mean 2,500 and standard deviation 600. At the end
of each week, the retailer observes its inventory position and
decides whether or not to place an order, and if so, for how many
units (so this is a periodic review system). When the retailer
orders more shirts from its supplier, it receives them after a lead
time of 3...

Millbridge Hospital buys 10,000 boxes of latex gloves every
year. Each box costs the hospital $7. The cost to place an order
for the gloves—which covers the employee staff time, shipping
costs, the hospital’s receiving center for inventorying, for
example—is estimated at $50 per order. Carrying costs (for storing
the boxes, verifying the inventory periodically, etc.) are
estimated at 50 cents per box per year. Millbridge uses a 6 percent
interest-cost assumption in its calculations. How many boxes should

Shelly's Shirts is considering whether to produce a component
in-house or whether to purchase it from a supplier. Shelly's Shirts

depreciated.) Total annual production costs are estimated to be
$134,000 in the first year, $120,000 in the second year, and
$116,000 in the third year. These decreases in expected production
costs...
