Instructions are below.

Explanation:

Giving the following information:

Standard quantity = 5 yards of material per unit.

The standard price = \$8.50 per yard

During the month, 8,800 parts were manufactured, using 45,700 yards of material at a cost of \$8.30.

To calculate the direct material price and quantity variance, we need to use the following formulas:

Direct material price variance = (standard price - actual price) * actual quantity

Direct material price variance = (8.5 - 8.3) * 45,700

Direct material price variance = \$9,140 favorable

Direct material quantity variance = (standard quantity - actual quantity) * standard price

Standard quantity = 8,800*5 = 44,000

Direct material quantity variance = (44,000 - 45,700) * 8.5

Direct material quantity variance = \$14,450 unfavorable

Total direct material cost = 9,140 - 14,450 = \$5,310 unfavorable
