The standard cost of Product B manufactured by Mateo Company includes three units of direct materials at $5.00 per unit. During June, 28,000 units of direct materials are purchased at a cost of $4.70 per unit, and 28,000 units of direct materials are used to produce 9,000 units of Product B.

Compute the total materials variance and the price and quantity variances.

Total materials variance $ ____
Materials price variance $ ____
Materials quantity variance $ ____

Repeat (a), assuming the purchase price is $5.20 and the quantity purchased and used is 26,200 units.

Total materials variance $ ____
Materials price variance $ ____
Materials quantity variance $ ____
SP=$5 (given)
SQ=27000 (9000@3per)
AP=$4.7(given)
AQ=28000 (given)

Now, price variance is AQ(SP-AP), or 28000($.3)=$8400 (This is favorable, since the materials were obtained at below average cost.) Quantity variance is SP(SQ-AQ), or $5(-1000)=-$5000. (This is unfavorable,...
