To achieve the maximum profit (also called net income), the business will operate at full capacity. The selling price is measured against the fixed and variable costs  where  `CP= $1240000 + ($55 times 60000)= 4540000` and`SP=$130 times 60 000= 7800000`

`therefore 7800000-4540000`

  `= $3 260 000`

Ans:

The maximum net profit is $3 260 000
