Concord, Inc. makes high-quality swimsuits. During the year, the company produced 760 suits, using 933 yards of material, and the company purchased 772 yards of material for \$4,805. The direct materials standard for the swimsuits allows 1.10 yards of material at a standard price of \$6 per yard.

Calculate Concord’s direct materials quantity variance for the year. (If variance is zero, select "Not Applicable" and enter 0 for the amounts. Round answer to 0 decimal places, e.g. 15.)

 Direct material quantity variance \$Enter direct material quantity variance in dollars rounded to 0 decimal places Select an option                                                          Not ApplicableFavorableUnfavorable

Standard price = \$6 per yard

Standard quantity = 1.1 yard per swimsuit

Hence, standard quantity for actual output = 760 x 1.2
= 836 yards

Actual quantity of material used = 933 yards

Direct material quantity variance = Standard price x (Standard quantity - Actual quantity)
= 6 x (836 - 933 )
= \$582 (Unfavorable)

Kindly give a positive rating if you are satisfied with this solution and please ask if you have any query.
