1. no

2. This is what i did > Before using this someone should confirm this answer there mite be mathematical error , but i am 75 % sure this is right.

pallet = 75 lb
2 uses for each pallet
10 $for a pallet 37.50$ for getting rid of one pallet (75 lb * $.50) dimension of pallet 48 x 48 x 40 25/pallet for service first toothpaste dimension 2.5 x 2.5 x 6 2.5 x 2.5 x 2 = 12.5 in ^2 >>>> 2 is number of sides 2.5 x 6 x 4 = 60in ^ 2 >>>> 4 is number of sides 12.5 + 60 = 72.5 in^2 .001 x 72.5=$0.0725
0.0725 x 20 000 000 = $1 450 000 material cost 2.5 x 2.5 x 6 = 37.5 in ^3 48 x 48 x 40 = 92160 in ^ 3 92160/ 37.5= 2457.6 thats how many tooth pastes can fit on one pallet since you cant have fraction u must round down. 2457 toothpastes on one pallet 20 000 000 / 2457 = 8140.008 lets just say 8140 pallets to transport 20 000 000 8140 pallets and since its 2 pallets are reused 8140 /2 = 4070 pallets needed 4070 x$10 = $40700 to buy pallets 4070 x$37.5 = $152325 to dispose 8140 x 25 =$203500 to transport

1450 000+40700+152325+203500 =$1 846 825 If you do the same math using the new dimensions you get dimension 2.25 x 2.25 x 5.75$1 237 500 material
$31 600 buying pallets$ 118 500 disposing
$158 000 Service =$ 1 545 600 + 100 000 for making changes = 1 645 600 this is only first year second year continues at \$1 545 600.

1 846 825-1 545 600= 301225 thats the amount they will save a year in total a year.
100 000/ 301225= 0.3319777 how long it will take in one year for them to get back on track
so about 1/3 of the year for them to recover from the 100 000 dollar defficet
