    2100 x 5 is 2100 units actually produced x 5 kg - standard usage of glass per panel.
    10500kg is actual amount used.
    £12 is standard price per kg. Formula is standard price x(standard usuage for actual production less actual amount used)
    hope this helps

    material price variance formula is:
    (standard price per kg of glass - actual price per kg of glass) actual kgs used

    standard price per kg calculation:if the total cost of material is divided by the total quantity , it will give the std price per kg

    £120,000/10,000 kg = £12

    actual price per kg calculation:
    total cost divided by total qty will give price per kg
    £147,000/10,500 kg = £14

    actual kgs used calculation:
    the actual kgs of glass used in production is given as 10,500 kg

    ( £12 -£14) 10,500 kg = £ 21,000 (A)
