# Answer a direct materials variances actual unit cost

This preview shows page 17 - 18 out of 18 pages.

Answer:a.Direct materials variances:Actual unit cost = \$68,600/14,000 square yard= \$4.90 per square yardPrice variance = 14,000 x (\$5.00 - \$4.90)= \$1,400 favorableEfficiency variance = \$5.00 x (14,000 - (1,500 x 10))= \$5,000 favorableb.Direct manufacturing labor variances:Actual labor rate = \$79,800/7,600= \$10.50 per hourPrice variance= 7,600 x (\$10.50 - \$10.00)= \$3,800 unfavorableEfficiency variance= \$10.00 x (7,600 - 7,500)= \$1,000 unfavorableMr. Kareem AbozeedChapter 7 Page 17
Ch 7 Revision145.Coffey Company maintains a very large direct materials inventory because of critical demands placed upon it for rush orders from large hospitals. Item A contains hard-to-get material Y. Currently, the standard cost of material Y is \$2.00 per gram. During February, 22,000 grams were purchased for \$2.10 per gram, while only 20,000 grams were used in production. There was no beginning inventory of material Y.Required:a.Determine the direct materials price variance, assuming that all materials costs arethe responsibility of the materials purchasing manager.b.Determine the direct materials price variance, assuming that all materials costs arethe responsibility of the production manager.c.Discuss the issues involved in determining the price variance at the point of purchase versus the point of consumption.Answer:a.Material price variance = 22,000 x (\$2.10 - \$2.00)= \$2,200 unfavorableb.Material price variance = 20,000 x (\$2.10 - \$2.00)= \$2,000 unfavorable148.Waddell Productions makes separate journal entries for all cost accounting related activities.
