The monthly budget amounts in the report were based on an expected production of 60,000 units per month or 720,000 units per year. The Assembling Department manager is pleased with the report and expects a raise, or at least praise for a job well done. The company president, however, is unhappy with the results for August because only 58,000 units were produced.

State the total monthly budgeted cost formula. (Round variable cost per unit to 2 decimal places, e.g. 1.55.)

Prepare a budget report for August using flexible budget data. (List variable costs before fixed costs. If answer is zero, please enter 0, do not leave any fields blank.)

In September, 64,000 units were produced. Prepare the budget report using flexible budget data, assuming (1) each variable cost was 10% higher than its actual cost in August, and (2) fixed costs were the same in September as in August. (List variable costs before fixed costs. If answer is zero, please enter 0, do not leave any fields blank.)
