Explanation:

Telephone Company

Direct Materials (All materials purchased were used)

Standard cost per roll: a 2250 pounds at \$4.00 per pound

Total actual cost: b 2570 pounds costing \$9600.

Actual unit Price = \$ 9600/2570 = \$ 3.75

Standard cost allowed for units produced was \$9000

Material Price Variance = (Actual Price * Actual Quantity) - (Standard Price * Actual Quantity)

Material Price Variance = (3.75*2570) - 4*2570 = 9600 - 10280 = 680 Fav

Material yield variance is also called Material Efficiency variance = (Actual unit usage - Standard unit usage) x Standard cost per unit

\$ 80 = (Actual units - \$ 9000/\$4) * \$4

\$80 * 4 = (Actual units - 2250)

320 + 2250 = Actual Units

Actual Units = 2570

Materials efficiency variance was \$80 unfavorable.

Direct Manufacturing Labor

Standard cost is 3 hours per roll at \$8.00 per hour

Actual cost per hour was \$8.25

Total actual cost: 1300 hours * \$8.25 = \$ 10725

Labor price variance: (actual hours * actual rate) - (actual hours * standard rate)

Labor price variance = \$ 10725 - 1300*8 = \$ 10725-\$ 10400 = \$ 325

Labor efficiency variance was \$400 unfavorable = Standard Hours * Standard Rate - Actual Hours * Standard Rate

400 = (3*450*8) - (Actual Hours * 8)

10800-400 = (Actual Hours * 8)

(Actual Hours) = 10400/8 = 1300
