Merone Corporation applies manufacturing overhead to products on the basis of standard machine-hours. The company bases its predetermined overhead rate on 3,800 machine-hours. The company's total budgeted fixed manufacturing overhead is \$14,060. In the most recent month, the total actual fixed manufacturing overhead was \$13,480. The company actually worked 3,700 machine-hours during the month. The standard hours allowed for the actual output of the month totaled 3,820 machine-hours. What was the overall fixed manufacturing overhead volume variance for the month? (Round your intermediate calculations to 2 decimal places.)

Multiple Choice

\$370 Favorable

\$580 Favorable

\$370 Unfavorable

\$74 Favorable

• Overhead volume Variance = (Standard hours allowed for actual output x Predetermined overhead rate) – Budgeted Overheads.
• Calculation of Predetermined Overhead rate

= \$ 14,060 budgeted overhead / 3800 budgeted machine hours

= 14060 / 3800

= \$ 3.7 per machine hours.

• Overhead volume Variance = (Standard hours allowed for actual output x Predetermined overhead rate) – Budgeted Overheads.

= (3,820 hours x \$ 3.7 per hours) - \$ 14,060

= 14,134 – 14,060

= \$ 74 Favourable

• Correct answer = Option #4: \$ 74 Favourable
