Actual hours worked................. 26,350
Required:
1. Calculate the ﬁxed overhead spending variance using the formula approach.
2. Calculate the volume variance using the formula approach.
3. Calculate the ﬁxed overhead spending variance and volume variance using the three-
pronged graphical approach.
4. What if 129,600 units had actually been produced in February? What impact would that have had on the ﬁxed overhead spending variance? On the volume variance? Cornerstone
