I cannot really tell from what you have typed, which part of the answer you are asking about.
It doesn’t matter how you arrange your workings (as long as it is clear for the marker).
However when you come to draw the multi-product PV chart then you have to do the products in the order of their CS ratios (highest first).
The point about the avoidable fixed costs is that when you just make Z (the one with the highest CS ratio) the only fixed costs are the general ones plus those of Z.
However when you next start making W, you then have the extra fixed costs specific to W, and so on.
