Question 8
An air conditioning and heating repair firm conducted a study to determine if the average outside temperature could be used to predict the cost of an electric bill for homes during the winter months in Houston, Texas. The resulting regression equation was:
Y = 227.19  1.45X, where Y = monthly cost, X = average outside air temperature
If the temperature averaged 48 degrees during December, what is the forecasted cost of December's electric bill?
Question 8 options:

Annual demand
Cost of production labor
Total revenue
Purchase cost
Cost of stockouts
Question 12
Mark Achin sells 3,600 electric motors each year. The cost of these is $200 each, and demand is constant throughout the year. The cost of placing an order is $40, while the holding cost is $20 per unit per year. There are 360 working days per year and the leadtime is 5 days. If Mark orders 200 units each time he places an order, what would his total ordering cost be for the year?

$200
$2,000
$720
$2,720
None of the above
Question 13
Daniel Trumpe has computed the EOQ for a product he sells to be 400 units. However, due to recent events, he has a cash flow problem. Therefore, he orders only 100 units each time he places an order. Which of the following is true for this situation?
Question 13 options:
Annual ordering cost will be higher than annual holding cost.
Annual ordering cost will equal annual holding cost.
Annual ordering cost will be lower than annual holding cost.
Nothing can be determined without more information.
Annual ordering cost will be unaffected by the order policy change.
Question 14
Andre Candess manages an office supply store. One product in the store is computer paper. Andre knows that 10,000 boxes will be sold this year at a constant rate throughout the year.
