NUMBER OF STUDENTS PERCENTAGE OF
WHO BOUGHT A BOOK OBSERVATIONS
16 or Fewer............. 0%
17.................. 4%
18................ 15%

20.................. 18%
21.................. 26%
22.................. 10%
23.................. 6%

25.................. 0%
a. Suppose each custom book costs Sherry $12 to print, and she sells the books to the students for $50 each. Excess books must be scrapped. What is the target service level? What is the target stocking point?
