2. A coworker of Sexton’s recommends that she maximize the shelf space devoted to those drinks with the highest contribution margin per case. Do you agree with this recommendation? Explain briefly.
3. What shelf- space allocation for the four drinks would you recommend for the Shell Hunter? Show yourcalculations.
