Practice Problems Chapter 119.Interspace Merchandising anticipated selling 29,000 units of amajor product and paying sales commissions of $6 per unit. Actualsales and sales commissions totaled 31,500 units and $182,700,respectively. If the company used a static budget for performanceevaluations, Interstate would report a cost variance of:A.$6,300U.B. $6,300F.C. $8,700U.D. $8,700F.E. None of the other answers are correct.Direct Material Quantity Variance=SP(AQ-SQ)$6 (31,500-29,000) =$15,000UDirect Material Price Variance= AQ (AP-SP)31500(*5.8-6)= $-6,300F** AP 5.8 = $182,700/31500 UnitsTherefore,Cost Variance=$15,000U-$6,300F=$8,700U10.Gridiron Merchandising anticipated selling 27,000 units of a major product and paying sales commissions of $6per unit.
