I assume the "total cost" is "total fixed cost" since the marginal cost is higher than the "total cost" divided by the number of items.

So at the production level of 1400 items, total cost = total fixed cost + n*marginal cost

where n=number of items to be produced,

marginal cost = $25, and

total fixed cost = $7250
