The daily demand for amoxicillin is normally distributed, with a mean of 200 ounces and a standard deviation of 80 ounces. The vendor for the pharmaceutical firm that supplies the drug calls the drugstore pharmacist every 30 days to check the inventory of amoxicillin. During a call, the druggist indicated that the store had 60 ounces of the antibiotic in stock. The lead time to receive an order is 4 days.
