Question

The number of loaves of white bread demanded daily at a bakery is normally distributed with mean 6800 loaves and variance 84000. the company decides to produce a sufficient number of loaves so that it will fully supply demand on 95% of the days.

(a) How many loaves of bread should the compan produce?

I know i need to find n = CI * standard dev. / E .. i can figure out CI and SD. but i cant find E..

(b) Based on (a), on what percentage of days will the company be left with more than 500 loaves of unsold bread?

I'm not sure on how to do this one!

Any amount of help would be amazing!!
