Question

The Gourmand Cooking School runs short cooking courses at its small campus. Management has identified two cost drivers it uses in its budgeting and performance reports—the number of courses and the total number of students. For example, the school might run two courses in a month and have a total of 60 students enrolled in those two courses. Data concerning the company’s cost formulas appear below:

Fixed Cost per Month | Cost per Course | Cost per Student |
|||||

Instructor wages | $ | 2,910 | |||||

Classroom supplies | $ | 300 | |||||

Utilities | $ | 1,210 | $ | 60 | |||

Campus rent | $ | 4,900 | |||||

Insurance | $ | 2,000 | |||||

Administrative expenses | $ | 4,000 | $ | 45 | $ | 4 | |

For example, administrative expenses should be $4,000 per month plus $45 per course plus $4 per student. The company’s sales should average $860 per student.

The company planned to run four courses with a total of 60 students; however, it actually ran four courses with a total of only 52 students. The actual operating results for September appear below:

Actual | ||

Revenue | $ | 48,700 |

Instructor wages | $ | 10,920 |

Classroom supplies | $ | 17,850 |

Utilities | $ | 1,860 |

Campus rent | $ | 4,900 |

Insurance | $ | 2,140 |

Administrative expenses | $ | 3,846 |

**Required:**

Prepare a flexible budget performance report that shows both
revenue and spending variances and activity variances for
September. **(Indicate the effect of each variance by
selecting "F" for favorable, "U" for unfavorable, and "None" for no
effect (i.e., zero variance). Input all amounts as positive
values.)**
