Preble Company manufactures one product. Its variable manufacturing overhead is applied to production based on direct labor-hours and its standard cost card per unit is as follows:

Direct materials: 5 pounds at \$8 per pound \$ 40

Direct labor: 3 hours at \$15 per hour 45

Variable overhead: 3 hours at \$9 per hour 27

Total standard cost per unit \$ 112

 The planning budget for March was based on producing and selling 21,000 units. However, during March the company actually produced and sold 26,000 units and incurred the following costs:
 Purchased 160,000 pounds of raw materials at a cost of \$6.50 per pound. All of this material was used in production. Direct laborers worked 70,000 hours at a rate of \$16 per hour. Total variable manufacturing overhead for the month was \$655,200.

1) What is the labor rate variance for March? (Indicate the effect of each variance by selecting "F" for favorable, "U" for unfavorable, and "None" for no effect (i.e., zero variance.). Do not round intermediate calculations.)

2) What is the labor efficiency variance for March? (Indicate the effect of each variance by selecting "F" for favorable, "U" for unfavorable, and "None" for no effect (i.e., zero variance.). Do not round intermediate calculations.)

 3) What is the labor spending variance for March? (Indicate the effect of each variance by selecting "F" for favorable, "U" for unfavorable, and "None" for no effect (i.e., zero variance.). Do not round intermediate calculations.) 4) What variable manufacturing overhead cost would be included in the company’s planning budget for March? 5) What variable manufacturing overhead cost would be included in the company’s flexible budget for March? 6) What is the variable overhead rate variance for March? (Round the actual overhead rate to two decimal places. Indicate the effect of each variance by selecting "F" for favorable, "U" for unfavorable, and "None" for no effect (i.e., zero variance.).) 15)What is the variable overhead efficiency variance for March? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round the actual overhead rate to two decimal places. Indicate the effect of each variance by selecting "F" for favorable, "U" for unfavorable, and "None" for no effect (i.e., zero variance.).)

1) Labour rate variance = (15-16)*70000 = 70000 U

2) Labour efficiency variance = (26000*3-70000)*15 = 120000 F

3) Labour spending variance = (26000*3*15)-(70000*16) = 50000 F

4) Variable manufacturing overhead planning budget = 21000*27 = 567000

5) Variable manufacturing overhead flexible budget = 26000*27 = 702000

6) Variable overhead rate variance = (9*70000-655200) = 25200 U

15)) Variable overhead efficiency variance = (26000*3-70000)*9 = 72000 F

3) labour spending variance =
