1. Bellingham Company produces a product that requires 14 standard pounds per unit. The standard price is \$10.5 per pound. If 2,500 units used 35,700 pounds, which were purchased at \$10.08 per pound, what is the direct materials (a) price variance, (b) quantity variance, and (c) cost variance? Enter a favorable variance as a negative number using a minus sign and an unfavorable variance as a positive number.

 a. Direct materials price variance \$ Favorable b. Direct materials quantity variance \$ Unfavorable c. Direct materials cost variance \$ Favorable

2. Bellingham Company produces a product that requires 8 standard direct labor hours per unit at a standard hourly rate of \$19.00 per hour. If 3,700 units used 30,800 hours at an hourly rate of \$18.43 per hour, what is the direct labor (a) rate variance, (b) time variance, and (c) cost variance? Enter a favorable variance as a negative number using a minus sign and an unfavorable variance as a positive number.

 a. Direct labor rate variance \$ Favorable b. Direct labor time variance \$ Unfavorable c. Direct labor cost variance \$ Unfavorable

SOLUTION:

1A)DIRECT MATERIALS PRICE VARIANCE=14994 FAVORABLE

(STANDARD PRICE-ACTUAL PRICE)*ACTUAL QUANTITY

(10.5-10.08)*35700

0.42*35700

14994

1B)DIRECT MATERIALS QUANTITY VARIANCE=7350 UNFAVORABLE

(STANDARD QUANTITY-ACTUAL QUANTITY)*STANDARD PRICE

(2500*14-35700)*10.5

(35000-35700)*10.5

(700)*10.5

(7350)

1C)DIRECT MATERIALS COST VARIANCE=7644 FAVORABLE

(STANDARD QUANTITY*14*STANDARD PRICE)-(ACTUAL QUANTITY*ACTUAL PRICE)

(2500*14*10.5)-(35700*10.08)

367500-359856

7644

2A)DIRECT LABOR RATE VARIANCE=17556 FAVORABLE

(STANDARD RATE-ACTUAL RATE)*ACTUAL HOURS

(19-18.43)*30800

0.57*30800

=17556

2B)DIRECT LABOR TIME VARIANCE= 22800 UNFAVORABLE

(STANDARD HOUR-ACTUAL HOUR)*STANDARD RATE

(29600-30800)*19

(1200)*19

(22800)

STANDARD HOUR=3700*8=29600

2C)DIRECT LABOR COST VARIANCE=(5244) UNFAVORABLE

17556+(22800)

(5244)
