Use the following information to answer questions 1 and 2

Heart Ltd. applies overhead on the basis of machine hours. One and oneâ?half (1.5) machine hours are required for each unit of product. The master budget showed planned production of 6,000 units for the upcoming period, with manufacturing overhead budgeted at \$205,200 of which 25% is fixed. Actual results for the period were 6,150 units produced, with 10,100 machine hours used. Actual overhead costs were \$158,500 variable and \$57,000 fixed.

1. Based on the information provided for Heart Ltd. what is the fixed overhead production volume variance for the period?
a. \$1,282 U
b. \$4,987 U
c. \$5,130 U
d. \$1,282 F
e. \$4,987 F

2. Based on the information provided for Heart Ltd. what is the over or under applied overhead for the period?
a. \$ 182 Under applied
b. \$5,170 Under applied
c. \$10,300 Over applied
d. \$14,780 Over applied
e. \$25,080 Over applied

#### Solution Preview

1. Production volume variance = Applied Fixed Overhead - Budgeted Fixed overhead
Fixed overhead = 205,200 X 25% = ...

#### Solution Summary

The solution explains how to calculate the production volume variance and under or over applied overhead
