She has determined that average waiting times will be 7 minutes with one sales-person, 4 minutes with two salespeople, 3 minutes with three sales-people, and 2 minutes with four salespeople. She has estimated the cost per minute that customers wait at $1. The cost per salesperson per shift (including fringe benefits) is $70.
