## Question: 9-3 three grams of musk oil are required for each…

Three grams of musk oil are required for each bottle of Mink Caress, a very popular perfume made by a small company in western Siberia. The cost of the musk oil is \$1.70 per gram. Budgeted production of Mink Caress is given below by quarters for Year 2 and for the first quarter of Year 3:

 Year 2 Year 3 First Second Third Fourth First Budgeted production, in bottles 64,000 94,000 154,000 104,000 74,000

Musk oil has become as popular as a perfume ingredient that it has become necessary to carry large inventories as a precaution against stock-outs. For this reason, the inventory of musk oil at the end of a quarter must be equal to 20% of the following quarter’s production needs. Some 38,400 grams of musk oil will be on hand to start the first quarter of Year 2.
