Oh, behave!10 000.

It's better to buy in bulk.

In today's world we work on "just on time" delivery. Since buns are delivered "every second day", you need enough buns for two days. If you sell 40 hamburgers a day, you will need 80 buns for two days. You already have 25 buns. How many more do you need?
