    A student group must order hot dogs for a concession stand at a sporting
    event. In the past, demand has been 7, 8, 9, or 10 dozen hot dogs for the event,
    depending on attendance and the weather. They need to order the hot dogs
    and buns the week before the event and will not be able to return any unused
    inventory. They purchase the hot dogs and buns for $2 per dozen and sell
    them for $6 per dozen.
    Fill in the following table to show the net profit (profit minus cost) for
    each of the possible order and demand levels: 7, 8, 9, or 10 dozen.

    7 Dozen 8 Dozen 9 Dozen 10 Dozen
