1. Daily demand for cases of Royal Cola soda at Helen's Food shop has always been 5, 6, or 7 cases. Develop a decision tree and decision table that illustrate the decision alternatives as to whether to stock 5, 6, or 7 Cases.

2. In problem 1, demand could be 5, 6, or 7 cases of Royal Cola per day. Thus 5, 6, or 7 cases should be stocked each day. Each case has a cost of \$3 and selling price of \$7. Helen may return cases not sold at the end of the day to the supplier and will refund be refunded the cost of each case except for a fee of \$2 per case for handling and storage. Develop an appropriate decision table with the information that:

a. The marginal profit (Mp) of selling 1 case is the selling price minus the cost.(Mp=\$7-\$3=\$4)

b.The marginal loss (ML) of not selling 1 case is the return cost of \$2. (ML =\$2)
