Part D  August Variance Analysis
During September of the current year, the controller was asked to perform variance analyses for August. The January operating data provided the standard prices, rates, times, and quantities per case. There were 1,200 cases produced during August, which was 50 more cases than planned at the beginning of the month. Actual data for August were as follows:
Actual Direct Materials
Price per Case Actual Direct Materials
Quantity per Case
Cream base $1.00 (for 72 ozs.) 75 ozs.
Natural Oils $6.20 (for 24 ozs.) 25 ozs.
Bottle (8oz.) $4.50 (for 12 bottles) 12.2 bottles
Actual Direct
Labor Rate Actual Direct Labor
Time per Case
Mixing $ 15.25 16.50 min.
Filling $ 11.50 4.50 min.
Actual variable overhead $ 125
Normal volume 1,500 cases
The prices of the materials were different than standard due to fluctuations in the market prices. Specifically, the prices of the cream base and bottles were below the standard price, while the price of natural oils was above the standard price. The Mixing Department used a higher grade labor classification during the month, thus causing the actual labor rate to exceed standard. The Filling department used a lower grade labor classification during the month, thus causing the actual labor rate to be less than standard.
13. Determine and interpret the direct materials price and quantity variances for the three materials. Enter the costs in dollars and cents.
