Best Results From Wikipedia Yahoo Answers Youtube
Break-even (or break even) is a point where any difference between plus or minus or equivalent changes side.
In economics& business, specifically cost accounting, the break-even point (BEP) is the point at which cost or expenses and revenue are equal: there is no net loss or gain, and one has "broken even". A profit or a loss has not been made, although opportunity costs have been paid, and capital has received the risk-adjusted, expected return.

The notion can also be found in more general phenomena, such as percolation, and is rather similar to the critical threshold. In energy, the breakeven point is the point where usable energy gotten from a process exceeds the input energy.
In computer science, the (less usual) term refers to a point in the life cycle of a programming language where the language can be used to code its own compiler or interpreter. This is also called self-hosting.
In medicine, it is a postulated state when the advances of medicine permit every year an increase of one year or more of the life expectancy of the living, therefore leading to medical immortality (barring accidental death).

Answers:Yes, that's the breakeven point. The breakeven point is the point at which neither option is better than the other (when the two plans have the same cost). 5 + .05x = .16x subtract .05x from both sides of the equal sign: 5 + .05x -.05x= .16x -.05x 5 = .11x divide both sides by .11 to get x alone by itself on one side of the equal sign. 5 = .11x 5/.11 = .11x/11 5/.11 = x 45.45 = x 45.45 minutes is the breakeven point this is 45 minutes, 27 seconds

Answers:I'm glad to hear that you're using Business Plan Pro 2007 but sad to hear that you're having problems with it calculating your Break Even point. One thing that you might try in Business Plan Pro is to reset the default formulas in the Break Even table so that it is pulling the correct data from your Sales Forecast and Profit and Loss to calculate the break even point. You can reset the default formulas by right clicking in the Break Even table and choosing Formula Reset > Table. If you're still having problems with it calculating a negative break even point, you might have an unusual forecast like a partial year for the first year in the plan. In that case, you'll be better served by doing your own Break Even point. It's usually calculated by taking the following: Fixed Cost (1-(Unit variable Costs/Unit Price)) Where: Unit Price - The price that you charge per unit. Take into account sales discounts and special offers. For non-unit based businesses, make the per-unit revenue $1 and enter your costs as a percent of a dollar. Unit variable cost - The incremental cost of each unit of sale. If you are using a Units-Based Sales Forecast table (for manufacturing and mixed business types), you can project unit costs from the Sales Forecast table. If you are using the basic Sales Forecast table for retail, service and distribution businesses, use a percentage estimate. For example, a retail store running a 50% margin would have a per-unit cost of .5, and a per-unit revenue of 1. Fixed costs - Technically, a break-even analysis defines fixed costs as costs that would continue even if you went broke. Instead, you may want to use your regular running fixed costs, including payroll and normal expenses. This will give you a better insight on financial realities.

Answers:The break-even point occurs when E = I, so you have 252 + 3.4x = 6.7x 252 = 3.3x x = 252/3.3 = 76.36363636 Plug the x into either equation to get the y value. I = 6.7(76.36363636) = 511.6363636 So your break-even point is (76.36363636,511.6363636)
