# 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:

Data used in budgeting:

 Fixed element per month Variable element per tenant-day Revenue — \$31.30 Wages and salaries \$3,800 \$7.30 Expendables 400 12.10

 Facility expenses 8,800 4.30 Administrative expenses 8,600 0.10 Total expenses \$21,600 \$23.80

Actual results for May:

 Revenue \$108,580 Wages and salaries \$23,580 Expendables \$36,798 Facility expenses \$19,330 Administrative expenses \$9,156

The overall revenue and spending variance (i.e., the variance for net operating income in the revenue and spending variance column on the flexible budget performance report) for May would be closest to:

a. \$5,466 F

b. \$5,316 U

c. \$5,316 F

d. \$5,466 U

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
