The ?standard? allows faculty to purchase access for each student 4 times per term at a standard cost of \$26.10 per purchase. During the most recent term (when 2,340 students were enrolled), 9,300 purchases were made at an actual cost of \$243,660.Calculate the price, usage (efficiency), and overall spending variance for purchased access (hint: use the DM price and quantity formulas). Label each variance as favorable or unfavorable.a) Price Variance for Purchased Student Access:b) Quantity (Usage) Variance for Purchased Student Access:c) Spending Variance for Purchased Student Access
