Normality and that seasonality is not a factor, Cost Accounting

One item a computer store sells is supplied by a vendor who handles only that item. Demand for that item recently changed, and the store manager must determine when to replenish it. The manager wants a probability of at least 96 percent of not having a stockout during lead time. The manager expects demand to average a dozen units a day and have a standard deviation of 2 units a day. Lead time is variable, averaging four days with a standard deviation of one day. Assume normality and that seasonality is not a factor. When should the manager reorder to achieve the desired probability?
