Charge a flat rate per unit after a certain range

Question:
I have 5 weight ranges with a fixed rates and rest are just added according to the remaining balance of weight.
Example:-
0 kg – 1kg  = $10
1 kg – 2kg  = $25
2 kg – 3kg  = $34
3 kg – 4kg  = $41
4 kg – 5kg  = $50
There after every 1kg extra need to add $10 
 
—————-
Total ordered weight:  8.82kg
calculation:  
– first 5kg = $50
– add. 3.82kg (4kg x 10) = $40 
—————————————–
Total Cost = $90
—————————————————-
can you please help me with configuration and give me example of how to set the above in x-shipping pro plugin?
Thank you very much
warm regards
