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 a box, and the dealer that sells the old lettuce is willing to pay $1.50 a box. Past history says that tomorrows demand for lettuce averages 250 boxes with a standard deviation of 34 boxes.
How many boxes of lettuce should the supermarket purchase tomorrow?
