A company purchases 200,000 litres of material at a cost of £0.55 per litre.
The budgeted production was 22,000 units which requires 220,000 litres of material.
The actual production was 19,000 units.
What is the material usage variance?
Please explain, thanks.

Budget / Std = (220,000/22,000) thus 10 litres per unit.
If you made 19,000 units with the purchased 200,000 litres then your adverse 10,000 because it should have been 190,000 (10 litres x 19,000 units).0 
Thanks for your response, @richiebkerry ...I thought the exact same but it's for one of the practice assessments and the answers say £6000?0

So with your answer, it would be £5500 if multiplied by the standard cost per unit (£0.55). But the answr is meant to be £6000, which i don't see how?! @richiebkerry0

You didn't give a standard price, only actual?0

Oh i'm sorry @richiebkerry , the total standard cost is £132,000... ?0
