1.

To determine

Determine the contribution margin variance, and contribution margin volume variance.

### Explanation of Solution

Contribution margin variance: Contribution margin variance reflects difference between the actual contribution margin and budgeted contribution margin. It is computed using the given formula:

Contribution margin variance=(Actual contribution margin)(Budgeted contribution margin)

Contribution margin volume variance: Contribution margin volume variance reflects difference between the actual quantity sold and the budgeted quantity sold multiplied by the budgeted average unit contribution margin. It is computed using the given formula:

Contribution margin volume variance}=[(Actual quantity sold)(Budgeted quantity sold)×(Budgeted average unit contribution margin)]

Compute the contribution margin variance.

Contribution margin variance=(Actual contribution margin)(Budgeted contribution margin)=$797,500$878,700=$81,200 Unfavorable Since, the budgeted contribution margin is more than the actual contribution margin; the contribution margin variance of$81,200 is unfavorable (U)

2.

To determine

Compute market share variance and market size variance.
