I am looking at December 05
Task 1.1 c  reconciling fixed overheads which is fine
When i came to work out fixed Overheads absorbed, in previous examples i have taken the OAR fr hours etc and times this by the actual units.
If u did this in this example it would be
600000 x 12 = way to much
so to get to 72000 you have to take the cost which is 120/1000 and x 600000
why is this  this is the unit oar?!?!!!??!?!?
any help would be much appreciated!!!

the oar / newspaper given £120 is for every 1,000 newspapers.
usually the cost card is given for one unit of a product here its for 1000 units of a product
so 600,000 newspapers/1,000 newspapers= 600 cycles of 1000 newspapers
600 x £120 =£ 72,0000

Please can anyone look at pev DEC 06Section 1 Task b viii the model answer is 210 adverse but i think it should be favourable can anyone help???
:huh:0 
This question is one of the easiest of them all (for me that is!!) cos I have problems with capacity/efficiency variances and there are next to no calculations involved.
But we are told that standard hours are 28000 and that actual hours are 27930. But it took longer to make less product so it makes it unfavourable.
28000 x £3 Absorption per hour = 84000 and 27930 x £3 Absorption per hour = 83790 Makes it £210 adverse.
In other words the standard is worse than the actual cost making it negative.
Does that make sense? When I give answers like that I pity the poor examiner who has to mark my papers!!
