1 Probability:A senior executive at your retail company asks the following â€œSuppose we were to stock 220 units. What is the probability that our realized profit will be at least $810?â€ Note: You are concerned here with realized profit not expected profit; realized profit is the profit corresponding to the actual demand value that is realized (occurs) for this item over the selling season, while expected profit averages over all possible demand values.
