    You have given the initial total fixed cost and total variable cost at each level of output qty.. Assuming total fixed cost do not increase till Qty 7 unitys, the following answer is consistent and should serve your purpose:

    QTY...TFC...TVC....TC ....AFC ....AVC ... ATC... MC

    1 .......70 ......30 ..100 ......70 .......30. . 100 ... 100..

    2 ...... 70 .... 40 ...110..... 35.........20..........55........10

    3 ... 70. .....45.....115.....23.3 ....15.........38.3........5

    4 .... 70. ...55 ....125.....17.5....13.75.... 31.25.....10

    5 ..... 70 ....75 .....145.....14........15 ........29...........20

    6 ..... 70 ....120.....190.....11.63....20........31.63.....45

    7 ..... 70..... 210 ....280.....10........30 .......40..........90

    Note: here we get TC=TFC+TVC, AFC= TFC/Qty.,

    AVC= TVC/Qtry., ATC = TC/Qty. , and

    MC= TVC at given Qty - TVC at j\immediately preceeding Qty

    This table i technically long. Also you need to mention the theory that is to be applied. According to the law of variable proportions, the tfc needs to be constant.

    If Returns to scale theory is to be used, then the fixed factors should change in a fixed proportion!!
