# Galante Kennel: calculate variance in a month

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 3,700 tenant-days, but its actual level of activity was 3,680 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 — \$30.20 Wages and salaries \$2,700 \$6.20 Expendables 900 11.00 Facility expenses 7,700 3.20 Administrative expenses 7,500 0.20 Total expenses \$18,800 \$20.60

Actual results for May:

 Revenue \$107,480 Wages and salaries \$23,470 Expendables \$36,787 Facility expenses \$19,220 Administrative expenses \$9,134

The activity variance for net operating income in May would be closest to:

a. \$2,149 U

b. \$192 U

c. \$192 F

d. \$2,149 F

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
