Explanation:

The computation of materials quantity variance for January is shown below:-

For computing the materials quantity variance for January first we need to find out the Standard quantity of material which is here below:-

Standard quantity of material for 3400 units will be: 3400 * 7.3

= 24,820 grams

Material Quantity Variance = Standard Price * (Standard Quantity - Actual Quantity)

\$6.00 * (24,820 grams - 24,870 grams)

= \$ 6 * (-50 grams)

= - \$300 Unfavorable

Therefore we have applied the above formula.
