Standard Cost \$30.00
During June, the company purchased 166,100 pounds of direct material at a total cost
of \$1,362,020. The company manufactured 34,600 units of product during June using
140,450 pounds of direct materials. The price variance for the direct materials acquired
by the company during June is (Do not round intermediate calculations.):
\$98,315 favorable.
\$116,270 favorable.
\$116,270 unfavorable.
\$98,315 unfavorable.
First, determine the actual price per unit of materials as follows.
Total cost of \$1,362,020 ÷ total pounds of 166,100 = \$8.20 per pound.
Then, the price variance for the direct material acquired by the company is determined
as follows.
Materials price variance = AQ × (AP − SP).
Materials price variance = 166,100 × (\$8.20 − \$7.50) = \$116,270 (U).

First, determine the standard quantity allowed as follows.
Total units of 47,200 units × standard quantity of 3 pounds per unit = 141,600 pounds.
Then, the direct material quantity variance is determined as follows.
Materials quantity variance = SP × (AQ – SQ).
Materials quantity variance = \$7.80 × (143,950 – 141,600) = \$18,330 (U).
SU 7.5 Mix Variances
Mix Variance – Isolates the effects of using the ACTUAL mix
Mix variance = ATQ x (SPSM – SPAM)
Actual Total Quantity x Std mix of inputs – Actual mix
Favorable variances = Actual mix < Std mix
SU 7.5 Yield Variances
Yield Variance – Isolates the effects of differences between
the ATQ of inputs and the STQ.
Yield variance = (STQ – ATQ) x SPSM
Std Total Qty - Actual Total Qty x Std mix of inputs
Favorable variances = Actual Total Qty < Std Total Qty

Total Overhead Variance consists of four variances.
-Total Variable overhead variances = flexible budget variance
-Spending variance – difference between actual variable overhead and
(budgeted application rate x the actual amount of input)
-Variance is favorable if actual production spending < std spending
-Efficiency variance – budgeted application rate times the difference between
the actual input and the standard input allowed for actual output.
-Spending Variances – difference between actual fixed overhead and the
amount budgeted. Same as fixed overhead flexible budget variance. The fixed
overhead is the same over the relevant range of output.
-Production volume variance – (Idle capacity variance) difference between
budgeted fixed overhead and the product of the budgeted application rate and
the standard input allowed for the actual output.
-Review page 269 Analysis of Overhead Variances
• Houghton Company maintains warehouses that stock items carried
by its e-retailer clients. When one of Houghton's clients receives an
order from an online customer, the order is forwarded to Houghton.
Houghton then pulls the item from the warehouse, packs it and
ships it to the customer. Houghton uses a predetermined variable
overhead rate based on direct labor-hours. According to the
company's records, .08 direct labor-hours are required to fulfill an
order for one item and the variable overhead rate is \$6.25 per
direct-labor hour. During July, Houghton shipped 290,000 orders
using 23,000 direct labor-hours. The company incurred a total of
efficiency variance during July was:
•
• \$2,300 unfavorable.
• \$1,250 favorable.

costs. The variable overhead efficiency variance during July was:

\$1,250 favorable.
\$2,300 favorable.
\$1,250 unfavorable.
The variable overhead (VOH) efficiency variance during July is determined as
follows.
VOH efficiency variance = SR (AH – SH).
VOH efficiency variance = \$6.25 per hour (23,000 hours – 23,200 hours) =
\$1,250 (F).
• Problem 7.6
• Water Control Systems manufactures water pumps and uses a standard
cost system. The standard overhead costs per water pump are based on
direct labor hours and are as follows: Variable overhead (4 hours at \$8 per
hour) \$32 Fixed overhead (4 hours at \$5* per hour) 20 Total overhead cost
per unit \$52
• * Based on a capacity of 100,000 direct labor hours per month.
• The following information is available for the month of November: 22,000
pumps were produced although 25,000 had been scheduled for
production.
• 94,000 direct labor hours were worked at a total cost of \$940,000.
• The standard direct labor rate is \$9 per hour.
• The standard direct labor time per unit is four hours.
• Variable overhead costs were \$740,000.
• Fixed overhead costs were \$540,000

Water Control’s variable overhead spending variance for November was

D. \$12,000 favorable.
• Problem 7.6
• Water Control’s variable overhead spending variance for November
was
• D. \$12,000 favorable.
• The variable overhead spending variance is the difference
based on the standard rate and the actual activity level. Thus, the
variable overhead spending variance was \$12,000 favorable
[(94,000 actual hours × \$8 standard rate) – \$740,000 actual cost].
• A. \$48,000 unfavorable.
\$48,000 unfavorable.
• B. \$60,000 favorable.
• Answer B is incorrect. The variance of \$60,000 favorable is based
on 100,000 hours, not the actual hours of 94,000.
• C. \$40,000 unfavorable.
The fixed overhead spending variance is \$40,000 unfavorable.
• PROBLEM 7.6 #2
• A fixed overhead volume variance based on
standard direct labor hours measures
• A. Deviation from standard direct labor hour
capacity.
• B. Deviation from the normal, or denominator, level
of direct labor hours.
• Problem 7.6 #2: A fixed overhead volume variance based on
standard direct labor hours measures
•
•
B. Deviation from the normal, or denominator, level of direct labor hours.
The fixed overhead volume variance measures the effect of not operating at the
budgeted (denominator) activity level. It is the difference between budgeted fixed
costs and the product of the standard fixed overhead application rate and the
standard activity level for the actual output. A favorable variance means that
activity was greater than expected and that fixed overhead was overapplied. It
might be caused by, for example, hiring more workers to provide an extra shift. An
unfavorable volume variance means that activity was less than budgeted
(overhead was underapplied), for example, because of insufficient sales or a labor
strike. Accordingly, the volume variance is usually outside the control of
production management. Moreover, unlike other variances, it does not directly
reflect a difference between actual and budgeted expenditure of resources.
•
•
•
•
A. Deviation from standard direct labor hour capacity.
Answer A is incorrect. The volume variance is not related to direct labor.
The volume variance is not related to overhead use.
The volume variance is not related to overhead efficiency.

• Problem 7.6 #3
• Nanjones Company manufactures a line of products distributed nationally
through wholesalers. Presented below are planned manufacturing data for
the year and actual data for November of the current year. The company
applies overhead based on planned machine hours using a predetermined
annual rate.
•
•
•
•
A. \$6,000 unfavorable.
B. \$6,000 favorable.
C. \$2,000 favorable.
D. \$14,000 unfavorable.
• C. \$2,000 favorable. Answer C is correct.
The variable overhead spending variance equals the
difference between actual variable overhead and the
product of the actual input and the budgeted application
rate. At a variable overhead application rate (standard
cost) of \$10 per machine hour (\$2,400,000 ÷ 240,000
hours), the total standard cost for the 21,600 actual
hours was \$216,000. Given actual costs of \$214,000, the
favorable variance is \$2,000.
The variance is favorable.
The amount of \$6,000 is based on planned machine
hours of 22,000.
The variance is favorable.
