C. Bruggs & Strutton received an order for 6,000 units at a price of $25.00. There will be no increase in fixed costs, but variable costs will be reduced by $0.54 per unit because of cheaper packaging. Determine the projected increase or decrease in profit from the order.
D. Bruggs also received an order for 2,500 units at $29 per unit. If packaging costs will not be reduced on this order and only one order ("C" or "D") can be accepted, which order is more attractive?
