Explanation:
1.
a.

In the solution below, the materials price variance is computed on the entire amount of materials
purchased, whereas the materials quantity variance is computed only on the amount of materials used in
production:

for Actual Output,
at Standard Price
(SQ SP)

Actual Quantity of

(AQ AP)

6,150 pounds*

= $34,440

7,380 pounds
$5.60 per pound
= $41,328

$49,714

Materials quantity
variance = $6,888 U
9,380 pounds
$5.60 per pound
= $52,528
Materials price variance
= $2,814 F
*4,100 units 1.5 pounds per unit = 6,150 pounds
1.
b.

No, the contract should probably not be signed. Although the new supplier is offering the material at only
$5.30* per pound, the large materials quantity variance indicates a problem using these materials in
production. The company still has 2,000 pounds of unused material in the warehouse; if these materials
do as poorly in production as the 7,380 pounds already used, the total quantity variance on the 9,380
pounds of materials purchased will be very large.
*$49,714 9,380 pounds = $5.30 per pound

2.
b.

Yes, the new labor mix should probably be continued. Although it increases the average hourly labor cost
from $11.90 to $12.60, resulting in an $1,659 unfavorable labor rate variance, this is more than offset by
greater efficiency of labor time. Notice that the labor efficiency variance is $5,950 favorable. Thus, the
new labor mix reduces overall labor costs.

The first step in computing the standard direct labor rate is to determine the standard direct labor-hours
allowed for the months production. The standard direct labor-hours can be computed by working with the
variable manufacturing overhead cost figures because they are based on direct labor-hours worked:

Many students will miss parts 2 and 3 because they will try to use product costs as if they were hourly
costs. Pay particular attention to the computation of the standard direct labor time per unit and the

You have recently accepted a position with Lorthen Inc. As part of your duties, you review the variances
that are reported for each period and make a presentation to the company's executive committee.
Earlier this morning you received the variances for one of the company's major products for the most
recent period. After reviewing the variances and organizing the data for your presentation, you
accidentally placed the material on top of some papers that were going to the shredder. In the middle of
lunch you suddenly realized your mistake and dashed to the shredding room. There you found the
operator busily feeding your pages through the machine. You managed to pull only part of one page from
the feeding chute, which contains the following information:

Explanation:
1.

The number of units produced can be computed by using the total standard cost applied for the period
for any inputmaterials, labor, or variable overhead. Using the standard cost applied for materials, we
have:
Total standard cost applied
Standard cost per unit

$589,950
$39.33 per unit

= 15,000 units

The same answer can be obtained by using any other cost input.

Wymont Company produces a single product that requires a large amount of labor time. Overhead cost
is applied on the basis of standard direct labor-hours. Variable manufacturing overhead should be $7 per
standard direct labor-hour and fixed manufacturing overhead should be $111,000 per year.
The companys product requires 5 feet of direct material that has a standard cost of $3.5 per foot. The
product requires 1.4 hours of direct labor time. The standard labor rate is $15 per hour.
During the year, the company had planned to operate at a denominator activity level of 22,200 direct
labor-hours and to produce 22,500 units of product. Actual activity and costs for the year were as follows:
Number of units produced
24,500
Actual direct labor-hours worked

Actual variable manufacturing overhead cost incurred $ 67,000
Actual fixed manufacturing overhead cost incurred
