    13288 is the answer

    Explanation:

    As per your information, I have rechecked your answer by increasing 10% to capacity.

    Total of 6,644 is correct.

    However we are required to calculate "How much can the industry produce in the Core segment the next year? ".

    =6644+6644 (given in question that all other products in the Core segment will increase their capacity by the same amount after 10% increase)

    =13288
