The monthly profit determines the total profitability of the company by deducting the total expense of the company with the total sales ofthe company. The manufacturing costs include direct material, direct labor, variable overhead, and fixed overhead (Harvey et al., 2013). The marketing costs include variable and fixed costs. In which the fixed costs does not change by variation in the units produced within the particular period of time. The total pen and pencil set produced in a month are 10,000, and all the units are sold in the same month. The total profit percentage of the company is 6.67% of the total sales of the company which shows that the company is not able to meet the breakeven point. The monthly profit of the company is covering the total cost of the company which includes total variable and total fixed cost within the particular time period.

So the company should accept the off request based on the profit. Yes, the off request should be accepted based on the profit because the company firstly considers the profit is generating from accepting the off request.
Other factors are also considered at the time of accepting the projects.
