    If canoes are discontinued, the net income lost will be in total $560,000 and additional $305,000.

    Explanation:

    Fixed costs are those costs which remained fixed whatever the level of activity. It does not change with the change in activity like sales, production etc.

    The direct fixed costs are those which is directly associated with an activity and which causes due to that activity, if we stop or abandon that activity. we can save this cost.

    On the other hand indirect costs are those cost which is allocated to the activity on some allocation basis, But it is not avoidable if you stop that activity.

    In this question dropping product line will save all the variable and direct fixed cost, just indirect fixed will have to face by the company.

    After dropping company has to face a loss of $560,000 for indirect cost.
