    Company B's production budget for the year ended December 31, 2005 was based on 10,000 units. Each unit requires two standard hours of labor for completion. Total overhead was budgeted at $90,000 for the year, and the fixed overhead rate was estimated to be $6.00 per unit. Both fixed and variable overhead are assigned to the product on the basis of direct labor hours. The actual data for the year ended December 31, 2005, are:
    Actual production in units 9,900
    Actual direct labor hours 22,000
    Actual variable overhead $37,600
    Actual fixed overhead $68,500

    Calculate:

    The variable overhead efficiency variance for the year
    The variable overhead spending variance for the year
    The fixed overhead spending variance for the year
    The fixed overhead applied to production for the year
    The fixed overhead production volume variance for the year
    The overhead spending variance for the year using a 3-variance analysis
    (is there even enough information to do this?)
    The overhead spending variance for the year using a 2-variance analysis
    (is there even enough information to do this?)
