Price and efficiency variances(7-24)The Monroe Corporation manufactures lamps. It has set up the followingstandards per finished unit for direct materials and direct manufacturing labor:Direct materials: 10 lb. at \$4.50 per lb.\$45.00 Direct manufacturturing labor: .5 hours at \$30 per hour\$15.00 The number of inished units budgeted for January 2012 was 10,000; 9,850 unitswere actually produced.Actual results in January 2012 were as follows:Direct materials: 98,055 lb. usedDirect manufacturing labor: 4,900 hours\$154,350 Assume that there was no beginning inventory of either direct materials or finished goods.During the month, materials purchased amounted to 100,000 lb., at a cost of \$465,000. Input price variances are isolated upon purchase. Input-efficiencyvariances are isolated at the time of useage.1. Compute the January 2012 price and efficiency variances of direct materialsand direct manufacturing labor.2. Comment on these variances.
