Photos Inc. has a standard cost system in which it applies overhead to products based on the standard direct labor hours allowed for the actual output of the period. Data concerning the most recent year appear below:
Total budgeted fixed overhead cost for the year $250,000
Actual fixed overhead cost for the year $265,000
Budgeted standard direct labor hours 40,000
Actual direct labor hours 41,000
Standard direct labor hours allowed for actual output 40,800

a. Compute the fixed portion of the predetermined overhead rate for the year. Show computations.
b. Compute the fixed budget and volume variances. Show computations.
