Curly’s manufactures the bags of Frozen French fries used at its franchised restaurants. Last week, Curly’s purchased and used 99,000 kg of potatoes at a price of $0.70 per kilogram. During the week, 2,300 direct labour hours were incurred in the plant at a rate of $12.30 per hour. The standard price per kilogram of potatoes is $0.90 and the standard direct labour rate is $12.05 per hour. Standards indicate that for the number of bags of frozen fries produced, the factory should have used 97,000 kg of potatoes and 2,200 hours of direct labour.
