Hi
You have to look at the budgeted number of hours it takes to produce one desk.
Budget 60,000 hrs / 12,000 desks = 5 hrs per desk
Acutal desks produced were 11,200 x 5 hrs = 56,000 hrs. This is the amount of time it should have taken to produce 11,200 desks.
Hours it should take 56,000/ actual hours it did take 58,200 x 100 = 96.2%
This ratio shows that the company was not as efficient as the budget.
The budget result is of course 100% because it sets its target and obviously hits it.
Hope this helps
Regards
