Calculate variable cost variances—explain results The standards for one case of liquid weed killer are:

Direct materials

3 lbs. @ $ 6.00/lb.

Direct labor

1.8 hrs. @ $12.00/hr.

Variable overhead (based on machine hours)

0.6 hr. @ $ 3.50/hr.

During the week ended August 6, the following activity took place:

2,390 machine hours were worked.
