Henrique Correa's bakery prepares all its cakes between 4
A.M.and 6 A.M.so they will be fresh when customers arrive. Day-old
cakes are virtually always sold, but at a 50% discount off the
regular $16 price. The cost of baking a cake is $10, and demand
is estimated to be normally distributed, with a mean of 25 and a
standard deviation of 7. What is the optimal stocking level? Refer
to the standard normal table LOADING... for z-values.

Based on your recommendations, Mr. Miller improved shop
operations and successfully reduced the number of customer
complaints. To maintain good service, Mr. Miller asked you to keep
monitoring the wait times of oil change customers
at the shop.
First, you decide to create an x-bar chart to
monitor the central tendency (i.e., mean). But you know that we
sometimes overlook a problem if we use only an x-bar chart.
Therefore, you decide to create an R-chart to
monitor the process...

- Pick a theme (topic)
- Define two distinct populations and two independent samples,
for example: Population 1: Male Students at DVC, Population 2:
Female Students at DVC. Two populations or samples are independent
if the values selected from one population are not related to or
somehow naturally paired or matched with the values selected from
the other population.
- Devise a sampling technique. A SRS is not expected but it
should be more than a mere convenience sample. Sampling...
