Expert Solution

(a)

To determine

Budget: Budget is a report which compares, enumerates, and reports the difference between the actual costs and the estimated or planned costs. If the actual costs are more than the estimated costs, the difference is reported as over budget. If the actual costs are less than the estimated costs, the difference is reported as under budget.

To determine: The missing figures of budget performance reports of cost centers for Company G

(c)

Over (under) budget = Actual costs–Budget costs= $297,950–$275,000= $22,950
