12. Myers Corporation has the following data related to direct materials costs for November: actual costs for 5,000 pounds of material at \$4.50; and standard costs for 4,800 pounds of material at \$5.10 per pound.

What is the direct materials quantity variance?

a.\$1,020 favorable

b.\$1,020 unfavorable

c. \$900 favorable

d.\$900 unfavorable

13. The standard costs and actual costs for direct labor in the manufacture of 2,500 units of product are as follows:

The direct labor time variance is

a. \$1,180 favorable

b. \$1,140 unfavorable

c. \$1,180 unfavorable

d. \$1,140 favorable

The following data relate to direct materials costs for February:

Materials cost per yard: standard, \$2.00; actual, \$2.10
