My question is how is the 1,875 is calculated for the Units produced for most profitable sales mix for Product MTV below?

Exercise 2517
Sales mix determination and analysis LO A1
Colt Company owns a machine that can produce two specialized products. Production time for Product
TLX is two units per hour and for Product MTV is five units per hour. The machine’s capacity is 2,500
hours per year. Both products are sold to a single customer who has agreed to buy all of the company’s
output up to a maximum of 4,250 units of Product TLX and 2,215 units of Product MTV. Selling prices and
variable costs per unit to produce the products follow.
                                                                                Product TLX                          Product MTV
Selling price per unit                                            $ 12.00                                         $ 7.20
Variable costs per unit                                               3.60                                            4.32

Determine the company’s most profitable sales mix and the contribution margin that results from that sales
mix. (Round cost per unit answers to 2 decimal places.)
