For computer paper for the next fiscal quarter, according to the information given by the superintendent, Mendel Paper Company will receive a profit of \$240,000.00. If 30,000 units are produced and sold at \$14.00 then the total sales will be \$420,000.00. However it costs the company \$6.00 to produce each unit.
