Terry Co. manufactures a commercial solvent that is used for industrial maintenance. This solvent is sold by the drum and generally has a stable selling price. Due to a decrease in demand for this product, Terry produced and sold 60,000 drums in December. The following information is available regarding Terry''s operations for December:

Standard costs per drum of product manufactured were as follows:

Materials
10 gallons of raw materials $20
1 empty drum $1
Total Materials Costs $21
Direct labor (1 hour) $7
Fixed factory overhead (per direct
labor hour) $4
Variable factory overhead (per

(3) Labor rate variance
(4) Labor usuage (efficiency) variance
(5) Factory overhead,using the three-way method
