Galante Kennel: calculate overall revenue and spending variance

Question

Galante Kennel uses tenant-days as its measure of activity; an animal housed in the kennel for one day is counted as one tenant-day. During May, Kennel budgeted for 4,800 tenant-days, but its actual level of activity was 4,780 tenant-days. Kennel has provided the following data concerning the formulas used in its budgeting and its actual results for May:

Facility expenses

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
