Hi,
To find the standard cost of material take the budget cost and divide by budget units and then multiply by the actual units. (272800 / 15500 x 15200)
Material price is budget cost divided by material (kg) = std price per kg multiplied by actual material used (272800 / 12400 = £22 per std kg, £22 x 11400 = 250800) This is what the materials should have cost. Then just subtract the actual figure to get the variance (250800257640 = an adverse variance of £6840.
