    Based on the following:

    Direct materials:
    Standard price per pound: $9
    Actual price per pound: $8
    Price variance: $20,000 F = AQ*SP - AQ*AP
    Total of direct-material variances: $2,000 F

    Direct labor:
    Actual hours worked: 40,000
    Actual rate per hour: $15
    Efficiency variance: $28,000 F
    Total of direct-labor variances: $12,000 ...
