You need to use the highlow method.
3000 batches = £7380
1200 batches = £3780
Calculate the difference between the two.
1800 batches = £3600
Divide 3600/1800 to find out what one batch with cost... 1 batch = £2.
Put that £2 back into either of your original equations
3000 * £2 + fixed cost = £7380
fixed cost = 73806000= £1380
If you've done your maths right then your numbers will work in the other equation as well (1200 * £2 + 1380 = £3780)0
