Breakeven Point Equation Error
In the HP Prime's Help system and User's Guide, they both state that the calculator uses the equation Fixed + Quantity * Cost=Quantity*Sales + Profit in the Breakeven Point solver. However, this equation does not yield the same result as the solver nor does it give the correct answer.
I believe the correct equation would be similar to Fixed + Quantity * Cost=Quantity * Sales  Profit. In short, the HP Prime gets the correct answer. Only the equation displayed in the help system and the User's Guide is incorrect. I'm pointing this out to help HP. On a side note, thank you HP for this powerful Finance APP! I'm cutting through problems like butter with it. I use the Prime all the time now. Fantastic machine. I also recommended the Prime to a friend of mine and he LOVES it too.
