Accepted Solution

A:
Answergiven,Standard price = $ 7.50 8,500 chairs were manufactured, using 43,600 yards at a cost of $7.55 per yard.Price Variance = Actual Quantity x (Actual Rate - Standard Rate)                          = 43,600 x (7.55 - 7.50)                          = 2180 (U) Quantity Variance = Standard Rate x (Actual Quantity - Standard Quantity)                               = 7.5 x (43600 - 8500 x 5)                               = 8250 (U) Cost Variance = 2180+ 8250 = 10430 (U)
