Pendleton Engineering makes cutting tools for metalworking operations. It makes two types of tools: R3, a regular cutting tool, and HP6, a high-precision cutting tool. R3 is manufactured on a regular machine, but HP6 must be manufactured on both the regular machine and a high-precision machine. The following information is available. Additional information includes the following:

• The capacity of the high-precision machine is not a constraint.
• Of the $550,000 budgeted fixed overhead costs of HP6, $300,000 are lease payments for the highprecision machine. This cost is charged entirely to HP6 because Pendleton uses the machine exclusively to produce HP6. The lease agreement for the high-precision machine can be canceled at any time without penalties.
• All other overhead costs are fixed and cannot be changed.
a. What product mix—that is, how many units of R3 and HP6—will maximize Pendleton’s operating income? Show your calculations.
