    10% of 18 million = 1.8 million for 2 million units

    10% of 15 million = 1.5 million for 1.5 million units

    For 2 million units at 10 percent discount you would spend

    18 million - 1.8 million = 16.2 million

    For 1.5 million units at 10 percent discount you would spend

    15 million - 1.5 million = 13.5 million

    You have a shortfall of 500 000 units between spending 16.2 million and 13.5 million.

    My strong recommendation will be to use $15 million.
