hi sir, for question 15 The following budgeted data for a particular period was available for a company selling two products: Sales price Variable cost Sales volume

Product A $20 $8 15,840 Product B $24 $11 10,560 The actual results for the period were as follows: Sales price Variable cost Sales volume

Product A $22 $8 14,200 Product B $26 $11 12,500 What is the total sales quantity contribution variance for the period? A $3,720 F B $3,720 A C $4,320 F D $4,320 A Is it correct if I take the differences between the actual sales volume and the budgeted sales volume for each product A and B and multiply them by the standard contribution per unit? Instead of multiplying by the average contribution per unit like what you taught in the revision lecture? Thank you so much for your support.

This was a very strange question and my answer is what the examiner had been expecting. However if a question like this was to be set these days then what you are suggesting is fine 馃檪

hi sir, for question 15

The following budgeted data for a particular period was available for a company selling two products:

Sales price Variable cost Sales volume

Product A $20 $8 15,840

Product B $24 $11 10,560

The actual results for the period were as follows:

Sales price Variable cost Sales volume

Product A $22 $8 14,200

Product B $26 $11 12,500

What is the total sales quantity contribution variance for the period?

A $3,720 F

B $3,720 A

C $4,320 F

D $4,320 A

Is it correct if I take the differences between the actual sales volume and the budgeted sales volume for each product A and B and multiply them by the standard contribution per unit? Instead of multiplying by the average contribution per unit like what you taught in the revision lecture?

Thank you so much for your support.
