A small market orders copies of a certain magazine for its magazine rack each week. Let X = demand for the magazine, with the following pmf.
x 1 2 3 4 5 6
p(x) 1/14 1/14 4/14 3/14 3/14 2/14
Suppose the store owner actually pays $2.00 for each copy of the magazine and the price to customers is $4.00. If magazines left at the end of the week have no salvage value, is it better to order three or four copies of the magazine? [Hint: For both three and four copies ordered, express net revenue as a function of demand X, and then compute the expected revenue.]
Please explain what steps you took and why. I really want to learn the material but I'm having trouble interpreting what information the question is giving me, what it means, and how to set it up. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
