Normal Distribution

Basic Statistics Problem (Normal Distribution; Mean; Standard Deviation)

I am having trouble with PART B of this problem. Here is the whole problem: Assume body temperatures are normally distributed with mean of 98.2 and a standard dev. of 0.62 Part A) Assuming a hospital defines a fever as 100 or over, determine the percentage of a normal healthy person considered to have a fever using Z tabl

What inventory levels to carry? Simulation? Optimization?

We are asked (ideally) to use Crystal Ball (CB), an Excel add-in, or Excel itself to do this inventory problem. CB would be ideal, but we can use just plain-old Excel if it can do what needs to be done. I see this as a simulation or maybe optimization problem, but not sure how to tackle it. Given historical data on deman
