As the company is not able to meet the demands, it is proposed to replace warehouse $$C$$ with a warehouse rented at $$D$$ whose supply capacity would be $$5000.$$ The expected profit would be Rs.$$6$$ and Rs.$$5$$ per piece distributed to $$P$$ and $$Q$$ respectively. The rental charges for warehouse $$D$$ is Rs.$$5,000$$ per year. Find the increase in the profit of the company after replacing warehouse $$C$$ by $$D.$$
