a) spark plug consumption unit 5000 both buy and production cost same .
Buy :- 5000*15 = 75000
Production :- 25000 ( 5000*5 ) +50000 = 75000
b) consumption less than 5000 buys is profitable.
Buys :- 4000*15 = 60000
Production :- 20000 ( 4000*5 ) + 50000 = 70000
c) consumption more than 5000 production is profitable.
Buys :- 6000*15 = 90000
Production :- 30000 ( 6000*5 ) + 50000 = 80000
