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.)
