    1)The total relevant cost (TRC) of holding inventory in a production facility is given by:

    TRC = (A/Q)(B) + C(Q/2)+D

    Q = order quantity,
    A, B, C, D = constants

    a)(10 pts) Determine the expression for the optimum order quantity (Q*) based upon the minimum TRC,
    b)(5 pts) Prove that the expression in part 'a" is the minimum TRC,
    c)(10 pts) If A, B, C, D = 10, 20, 30, 40, respectively, calculate the optimal Q, indicated as (Q*), for minimum TRC,
    d)(10 pts) If A, B, C, D = 10, 20, 30, 40, respectively, calculate the minimum cost (TRC*).
