```Pato Company produces leather sandals. The company employs a standard costing
system and has the following standards in order to produce one pair of sandals:

standard quantity              standard price
direct materials     2 leather strips              ?? per strip
direct labor         2.5 hours                     \$10 per hour
variable overhead    2.5 hours                     ?? per hour

During May, Pato purchased leather strips at a total cost of \$124,520 and had
direct labor totaling \$117,100. During May, Pato used 18,790 leather strips in
the production of sandals. Pato had no beginning inventories of any type for
May. At May 31, Pato had 780 leather strips remaining in its direct materials
inventory.

Pato Company reported the following variances for May:

Direct material price variance ..............  \$7,100 unfavorable
Direct labor rate variance ..................  \$29,500 favorable
Total direct labor variance .................  \$8,900 unfavorable
Variable overhead spending variance .........  \$2,440 favorable
Variable overhead efficiency variance .......  \$34,560 unfavorable

Calculate Pato's direct material quantity variance for May. If the variance is
variance is unfavorable, simply enter your answer as a number (i.e., 5000).```

Total Direct labor variance = Total actual labor cost - standard hours x standard rate
\$8900 = \$117100 - Standard Hours x \$10
Standard hours = 10820 hours

Actual units = 10820 / 2.5 = 4328 pairs of sandals

Direct Material price variance = Actual Material Cost - Actual Quantity x Standard Price
\$7100 = \$124520 - 19570 x Standard Price
Standard Price = \$6 per leather strip

Direct Material Quantity Variance = (Actual Quantity - Standard Quantity) x Standard Price
= (18790 - 4328 x 2) x \$6 = \$60804
