    A. 16,971 pieces

    B.$530.34

    C.$530.32

    Explanation:

    a)

    EOQ = √2∗A∗B:C

    EOQ = Economic Order Quantity

    A = Annual Demand

    B = Buying Cost

    C = Carrying Cost per unit per year

    Hence:

    A = 45,000 pieces

    B = $200 per order

    C = $1.25 * 5% per unit per year

    = $0.0625

    EOQ = √2∗45,000∗$200 : $0.0625

    = 16,970.56 approximately 16,971 pieces

    b)

    Annual Holding Cost = Average Inventory * Holding Cost per unit per year

    Average Inventory = EOQ:2

    Using the formula

    Annual Holding Cost = 16,971 : 2 ∗$0.0625

    Annual Holding Cost = 8,485.5*$0.0625

    Annual Holding Cost = $530.34

    c)

    Annual Ordering Cost = Ordering Cost Per order * No. of Orders

    No. of Orders = Annual Demand:EOQ

    Annual Ordering Cost = $200∗45,000: 16,971

    Annual Ordering Cost = $9,000,000:16,971

    Annual Ordering Cost = $530.32
