Request Description

 Harmon Household Products, Inc., manufactures a number of consumer items for general household use. One of these products, a chopping board, requires an expensive hardwood. During a recent month, the company manufactured 4,000 chopping boards using 11,000 board feet of hardwood. The hardwood cost the company \$18,700.

 The company’s standards for one chopping board are 2.5 board feet of hardwood, at a cost of \$1.80 per board foot.

 Required: 1a. According to the standards, what cost for wood should have been incurred to make 4,000 chopping blocks? (Omit the "\$" sign in your response.) 1b. How much greater or less is this than the cost that was incurred? (Input the amount as a positive value. 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.) 2. Break down the difference computed in (1) above into a materials price variance and a materials quantity 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.)
