Student Answer: A debit to the factory overhead account, at standard cost. A credit to the factory overhead account, at standard cost. A debit to WIP inventory, at actual cost. A credit to Finished Goods Inventory, at standard cost. Question 11. Question : Which of the following factors is not usually important when deciding whether to investigate a variance? Student Answer: Magnitude of the variance. Trend of the variance over time. Whether the variance is favorable or unfavorable. Cost of investigating the variance. Likelihood that the variance will recur in the future. Question 12. Question : The difference between total variable overhead cost incurred and the standard variable overhead cost based on the actual quantity of the cost driver used to apply variable overhead is the: Student Answer: Total variable overhead variance. Variable overhead spending variance. Variable overhead rate variance. Variable overhead efficiency variance. UNIT 5 QUIZ

Question 13. Question : Electronic Component Company (ECC) is a producer of high-end video and music equipment. ECC currently sells its top of the line "ECC" DVD player for a price of $250. It costs ECC $210 to make the player. ECC's main competitor is coming to market with a new DVD player that will sell for a price of $220. ECC feels that it must reduce its price to $220 in order to compete. The sales and marketing department of ECC believes the reduced price will cause sales to increase by 15%. ECC currently sells 200,000 DVD players per year. Assuming sales and marketing are not correct in their estimation and the volume of sales is not changed and ECC meets the competitive price, what is the target cost if ECC wants to maintain its same income level? Student Answer: $210. $200. $190. $180. Question 14. Question : Lucky Company's direct labor information for the month of February is as follows: Actual DL Hours Word (AQ) = 61,500 Standard DL Hours Allowed (SQ) = 63,000 Total Payroll for DL = $774,900 DL Efficiency Variance = $18,000 The standard direct labor rate per hour is: Student Answer: $12.00. $12.30. $12.60. $13.20. $13.50.

UNIT 5 QUIZ Question 15. Question : Lucky Company's direct labor information for the month of February is as follows: Actual DL Hours Word (AQ) = 61,500 Standard DL Hours Allowed (SQ) = 63,000 Total Payroll for DL = $774,900 DL Efficiency Variance = $18,000 The actual direct labor rate per hour (AP) is: Student Answer: $12.00. $12.30. $12.60. $13.20. $13.50.
