Calculates the optimal inventory level for uncertain demand for a perishable product.
The demand follows a lognormal distribution with a mean of Dmean and standard deviation of Dsd.
Q: The optimal inventory level.
price: The retail price.
cost: The purchase price.
Dmean: The mean of the demand.
Dsd: The standard deviation of the demand.
For a retail price of $7, a cost of $5 where the demand follows a lognormal distribution with a mean demand of 50 and a standard deviation of 0.20, calculate the optimal inventory.
