Ruby Company produces a chair that requires 6 yards of material per unit. The standard price of one yard of material is $11.20. During the month, 6,700 chairs were manufactured, using 41,000 yards at a cost of $10.64 per yard. Enter favorable variances as negative numbers.
(a) 
Determine the price variance. 
$(Favorable/Unfavorable) 

(b) 
Determine the quantity variance. 
$(F/U) 

(c) 
Determine the cost variance. 
$(F/U) 
Answer to Part a)
Price Variance = (Actual Unit Cost – Standard Unit Cost) *
Actual Quantity
Price Variance = ($10.64  $11.20) * 41,000
Price Variance = 22,960 (Unfavourable)
Answer to Part b)
Quantity Variance = (Standard Quantity – Actual Quantity) *
Standard Price
Standard Quantity = 6,700 * 6 = 40,200
Quantity Variance = (40,200 – 41,000) * $11.20
Quantity Variance = 8,960 (Unfavourable)
Answer to Part c)
Cost Variance = Price Variance + Quantity Variance
Cost Variance = 22,960 + 8,960
Cost Variance = 31,920 (Unfavourable)
