    Saskatchewan Can Company manufactures recyclable soft-drink cans. A unit of production is a case of 12 dozen cans. The following standards have been set by the production-engineering staff and the controller.

    Direct labor: Direct material:
    Quantity, .25 hour Quantity, 4 kilograms
    Rate, $16 per hour Price, $.80 per kilogram

    Actual material purchases amounted to 240,000 kilograms at $.81 per kilogram. Actual costs incurred in the production of 50,000 units were as follows:

    Direct labor: $211,900 for 13,000 hours
    Direct materials: $170,100 for 210,000 kilograms
