Hello,

The standards for one case of liquid weed killer are as follows:

 Direct materials 7 lbs @\$8.25 pr/lb Direct labor 4 hours @\$17.6/hr Variable overhead (based on machine hours) 1.3 hr @\$6.05/hr

During the week ending May 6, the following activity took place

5,632 machine hours were worked

32,239 lb of raw material were purchased for inventory at a total cost of \$271,452.

4,560 cases of finished product were produced.

31,755 lb. of raw material were used.

17,839 labor hours were worked at an average rate of \$17.88 per hour.

\$32,891 actual variable overhead costs were incurred.

Calculate each of the following variances:  Do not round intermediate calculations.

 Raw materials usage variance ??? Direct labor rate variance ??? Direct labor efficiency variance ??? Variable overhead spending variance ??? Variable overhead efficency variance ???

Thanks...
