The following data relate to direct materials costs for February:

Materials cost per yard: standard, \$1.90; actual, \$2.04
Standard yards per unit: standard, 4.67 yards; actual, 5.02 yards
Units of production: 9,200

Calculate the direct materials quantity variance.

a.\$6,118.00 favorable

b.\$6,568.80 favorable

c.\$6,568.80 unfavorable

d.\$6,118.00 unfavorable

D) \$ 6,118.00 unfavorable is the correct alternative

Explanation :

Direct materials quantity variance = [ Standard quantity - Actual quantity ] X Standard price

Standard quantity = 9,200 X 4.67 yards = 42,964 yards

Actual quantity = 9,200 X 5.02 yards = 46,184 yards

Standard price = \$ 1.90 per Yard

Direct materials quantity variance = [ 42,964 - 46,184] X \$ 1.90 = \$ (6,118.00) unfavorable.

Because actual is higher than standard or budgeted performance.
