It is the Total Cost of Week 1 (Direct labor + other manufacturing cost) = \$17,000 + \$ 25,000 = \$ 42,000

Hi! Use the equation Y=a+bx, and by using high-low method you will get the value of VC per unit (5.50)
High cost = 47,500 @ 6,000units
Low cost  = 42,000 @ 5,000units
Then, you can used either cost value to substitute in the equation. For easier computation, we usually used the lower cost to solve for the FC giving you the equation (42,000 = a + 5.50*5,000).

Hope this helps.
