I would be happy to help.
I do not have access to the practice papers. So I would need someone who can access them to take a copy of the questions. You can post it here or attach it to an email.

Hi, if anybody can still help with this question that would be great, thank you!!

Keta operates a standard costing system & uses raw material C2X which is a global commodity. The standard price was set based upon a market price of £450 per litre when the material price index for C2X was 120.50. The following information has been gathered:

-the price index increased to 126.525 in June X3
-the raw material price variance for June was £375,000 adverse
-12,500 litres of material C2X were purchased in June

a) The part of the variance explained by the increase in the price index is......
b) The part of the variance not explained by the increase in the price index is......

HI

First Find the new price for the increased price index in June
£450/120.50*126.525 = £472.50

THE PART OF THE VARIANCE EXPLAINED.
(12500litres* £450) - (12500litres*£472.50)
£450* 12500 litres = 5625000
£472.50*12500 litres=5906250. the difference between the two figures £218250 is THE PART OF THE VARIANCE EXPLAINED.

THE PART OF THE VARIANCE NOT EXPLAINED.
£450*12500LITRES + 375000(ADVERSE PRICE VARIANCE) - \$472.50*12500=
6000000-5906250 =93750

126.525-120.50/120.50*100
126.525-120.50=6.025. 6.025/120.50= 0.05. 0.05*100 = 5%
