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

hi
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

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