Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

No of post cards ordered in 1 year =  3,160,080

    Carrying Cost of each post card                    = $0.06

Therefore total Carrying cost of 3,160,080 post cards = No of post card    X   cost of each post card

                                                                            = 3,160,080   X  0.06

                                                                            = $189,604.80

Cost of each order of post card    =  $233 

Therefore total cost of 8 times order  = cost of each order    X   no of order

                                                            =  $233    X   8

                                                            =  $1,864

Therefore annual total costs of post card inventory  = Total Carrying cost    +   Total cost of 8 times order

                                                                                   =  $ 189,604.80 +  $1,864

                                                                                  =  $191,468.80

Annual total costs of post card inventory   =  $191,468.80
