4. A restaurant currently uses 62,500 boxes of napkins each year at a constant daily rate. If the cost to order napkins is $200.00 per order and the annual carrying cost for one box of napkins is $1.00, then the optimal order quantity (EOQ) for napkins would be a. 62,500 boxes

b. 10,000 boxes
*c. 5,000 boxes
d. 2,500 boxes

Calculate the EOQ, Q* =sqrt [(2*D*CO )/CC] = sqrt [(2*62500*200)/1] = 5000

5. A restaurant currently uses 62,500 boxes of napkins each year at a constant daily rate. The cost to order napkins is $200.00 per order and the annual carrying cost for one box of napkins is $1.00. If the restaurant orders the optimal (EOQ) number of boxes each time an order is placed, then the number of orders placed during the year would be *a. 12.5

b. 15

# of orders = D/Q* = 62500/5000 = 12.5

The cost to order napkins is $200.00 per order and the annual carrying cost for one box of napkins is $1.00.

b. 75.3 days
c. 32.8 days
*d. 29.2 days
Time between orders = # of working days/# of orders = 365/12.5 = 29.2 days
