The local supermarket buys lettuce each day to ensure really fresh produce. Each morning any lettuce that is left from the previous day is sold to a dealer that resells it to farmers who use it to feed their animals. This week the supermarket can buy fresh lettuce for $ 4.00 a box. The lettuce is sold for $ 10.00 a box and the dealer that sells old lettuce is willing to pay $ 1.50 a box. Past history says that tomorrow’s demand for lettuce averages 250 boxes with a standard deviation of 34 boxes. How many boxes of lettuce should the supermarket purchase tomorrow?
