Financial Performance Online exam 2

Hi
Can any one help with task 2 B, I can't see how they get the answer of £13.25. I have taken the variance of £14850 off the budgeted cost of £163125 the nearest I get is £13.18.

Thanks
JO

    Standard cost (SC) = £14.50 per hour (£163,125 / 11,250)
    AH = Actual hours
    AC = Actual cost

    Long way:
    LR variance = (SC x AH) - AC = £14,850
    (£14.50 x 11,880) - AC = £14,850
    AC = £172,260 - £14,850 = £157,410
    £157,410 / 11,880 = £13.25

    Short way:
    £14,850 F / actual hours (11,880) = £1.25
    £14.50 - £1.25 = £13.25
