The product will sell for $300 per unit. Demand for the product is expected to range from 0 to approximately 20,000 units, with 4,000 units the most likely.

A)Develop a what-if spreadsheet model computing profit for this product in the base case, worst-case, and best-case scenarios.

Best-case profit: $________

Worst-case profit: $_______

Base case profit: $________

B)Model the variable cost as a uniform random variable with a minimum of $160 and a maximum of $240. Model product demand as 1,000 times the value of a gamma random variable with an alpha parameter of 3 and a beta parameter of 2. Construct a simulation model to estimate the average profit and the probability that the project will result in a loss.
