The difference between the actual cost and the standard cost is known as variance. The variance can either be favorable or unfavorable. Favorable variance means the actual cost is lower than the standard cost, while unfavorable variance means the actual cost is higher than the standard cost.

Variance analysis is the total different between the actual cost and standard cost hence it can't be the sum
