Required:

1.

What was the total standard cost of the materials used during August? (Omit the “$” sign in your response.)

Standard cost $

2.

How many yards of material are required at standard per kit? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your final answer to 2 decimal places.)

Number of yards yards per kit

3.

What was the materials price variance for August if there were no beginning or ending inventories of materials? (Input all amounts as positive values. Do not round intermediate calculations. Leave no cells blank – be certain to enter “0” wherever required. Indicate the effect of each variance by selecting “F” for favorable, “U” for unfavorable, and “None” for no effect (i.e., zero variance). Omit the “$” sign in your response.)

4.

What is the standard direct labor rate per hour? (Omit the “$” sign in your response.)

Standard direct labor rate $ per DLH

5.

What was the labor rate variance for August? The labor efficiency variance? (Input all amounts as positive values. Do not round intermediate calculations. Leave no cells blank – be certain to enter “0” wherever required. Indicate the effect of each variance by selecting “F” for favorable, “U” for unfavorable, and “None” for no effect (i.e., zero variance). Omit the “$” sign in your response.)
