1.Exercise 211 Preparation of flexible budgets L.O. P1
Mesa Company’s fixed budget for the first quarter of calendar year 2011 reveals the following.

Prepare flexible budgets that show variable costs per unit, fixed costs, and three different flexible budgets for sales volumes of 7,500, 10,000, and 12,500 units. (Round your “Variable amount per unit” to 2 decimal places. Input all amounts as positive values. Omit the “$” sign in your response.)

Exercise 214 Preparation of a flexible budget performance report L.O. P1
Daytec Company’s fixed budget performance report for June follows. The $440,000 budgeted expenses include $300,000 variable expenses and $140,000 fixed expenses. Actual expenses include $130,000 fixed expenses.

Prepare a flexible budget performance report showing any variances between budgeted and actual results. List fixed and variable expenses separately. (Input all amounts as a positive value. Indicate the effect of each variance by selecting “F” for favorable, “U” for unfavorable, and “None” for no effect (i.e., zero variance). Leave no cells blank – be certain to enter “0” wherever required. Omit the “$” sign in your response.)

Exercise 217A Computation and interpretation of overhead spending, efficiency, and volume variances L.O. P3
[The following information applies to the questions displayed below.]
Sonic Company set the following standard costs for one unit of its product for 2011.






Direct material (20 Ibs. @ $2.50 per Ib.)


$



Direct labor (15 hrs. @ $8.00 per hr.)





Factory variable overhead (15 hrs. @ $2.50 per hr.)





Factory fixed overhead (15 hrs. @ $0.50 per hr.)










Standard cost


$







The $3.00 ($2.50 + $0.50) total overhead rate per direct labor hour is based on an expected operating level equal to 75% of the factory’s capacity of 50,000 units per month. The following monthly flexible budget information is also available.

During the current month, the company operated at 70% of capacity, employees worked 500,000 hours, and the following actual overhead costs were incurred.

6.Exercise 218 Computation and interpretation of materials variances L.O. P2
BTS Company made 6,000 bookshelves using 88,000 board feet of wood costing $607,200. The company’s direct materials standards for one bookshelf are 16 board feet of wood at $7 per board foot.

(1)

Compute the direct materials variances incurred in manufacturing these bookshelves. (Do not round your intermediate calculations. Input all amounts as a positive value. Indicate the effect of each variance by selecting “F” for favorable, “U” for unfavorable, and “None” for no effect (i.e., zero variance).
