Total price and quantity variances for materials and labor

Haslett Inc., which produces a single product, has prepared the following standard cost sheet for one unit of the product.

Direct materials (8 pounds at $2.75 per pound) $22

Direct labor (3 hours at $16.00 per hour) $48

During the month of April, the company manufactures 231 units and incurs the following actual costs.

Direct materials purchased and used (1,930 pounds) $8,106

Direct labor (700 hours) $10,150

Total materials variance $ Favorable/Unfavorable

Materials price variance $ Unfavorable/Favorable

Materials quantity variance $ Favorable/Unfavorable

Total labor variance $ Favorable/Unfavorable

Labor price variance $ Favorable/Unfavorable

Labor quantity variance $ Favorable/Unfavorable

Compute the total, price, and quantity variances for materials and labor. (Round unit costs to 2 decimal places, e.g. 10.50 and all other computations and final answers to 0 decimal places, e.g. 125.)
