My question:

Omar Industries manufactures two products: Regular and Super. The results of operations for 20×1 follow. Regular Super Total Units 10,000 3,700 13,700 Sales revenue $ 240,000 $ 740,000 $ 980,000 Less: Cost of goods sold 180,000 481,000 661,000 Gross Margin $ 60,000 $ 259,000 $ 319,000 Less: Selling expenses 60,000 134,000 194,000 Operating income (loss) $ 0 $ 125,000 $ 125,000 Fixed manufacturing costs included in cost of goods sold amount to $3 per unit for Regular and $20 per unit for Super. Variable selling expenses are $4 per unit for Regular and $20 per unit for Super; remaining selling amounts are fixed. Omar Industries wants to drop the Regular product line. If the line is dropped, company-wide fixed manufacturing costs would fall by 10% because there is no alternative use of the facilities. What would be the impact on operating income if Regular is discontinued
