1. (TCO 5) The following information is available from the Taylor Company.
Actual hours 3,500
Standard hours 3,800
Variable overhead rate per direct labor hour \$2.50
Assuming that Taylor uses a three-way analysis of overhead variances, what is the spending variance?
(Points : 11)
\$750 favorable
\$750 unfavorable
\$950 favorable
\$200 unfavorable

EXPLANATION:
The spending variance is the difference between the actual total factory overhead and the budgeted amount for the actual output.
Budgeted \$7,000 + (3,500 x \$2.50) \$15,750
Actual (15,000)
\$750 F

2. (TCO 5) In an activity-based costing system, what should be used to assign a department’s manufacturing overhead costs to products produced in varying lot sizes? (Points : 11)
A single cause-and-effect relationship
Multiple cause-and-effect relationships
Relative net sales value of the products
A product’s ability to bear cost allocations

EXPLANATION:

3. (TCO 1) An examination of Boener Company’s past maintenance records disclosed the following costs and volume measures the following.
Highest Lowest
Cost per month \$39,200 \$32,000
Machine hours 24,000 15,000
Using the high-low technique, estimate the annual fixed cost for...
