    The company will have financial advantage as it is able to generate more revenue then earlier. The company can benefit from increase of fixed selling expense by selling more units and generating more profits.

    Explanation:

    If Andretti company produces and sells 89,000 daks at $44 per dak then it can generate revenue of $3,916,000.

    If the company increases the selling expense it can increase the sales by 35% above the current level of 89,000, the company can sell 120,150 units at $44 per unit which generates the revenue of $5,286,600. There will be additional selling expense of $140,000. The net gain to the Andretti company after the increase of sales will be 5,146,000 ($5,286,600 - $140,000).

    There is net gain to to company of $1,230,000 ($5,286,600 - $3,916,000)
