    The Fitness Shop is considering ordering a special model exercise machine. Each unit will cost the shop $220 and it will sell for $400. Any units not sold at the regular price will be sold at the year-end model clearance for $150. Assume that demand follows a normal probability distribution with µ = 10 and variance = 3. What is the recommended order quantity?

    I end up with Cu=360 and Co=78... and I know that isn't correct. My P(demand <= Q*) = .66

    And I end up with Q*=43. It's supposed to end up being 26. Can you show me how this problem is supposed to be worked out?
