HP 10BII Setting a Sales Price
HP 10BII User Manual on page 95 demostrate on how to

calculate on "Setting a Sales Price" with this formula.

Price = Total Cost ÷ Number of Units x (1+(%RTN ÷ 100))

As shown in the manual the last step doesn't have to be 20 [÷] 100 [=]

On Page 33 about "Finding a Percent" said that the [%] key divides a number by 100
unless it is preceded by an addition or subtraction sign.

In this case this formula is preceded by the [x] sign Key so here is the shorter stpes.

40000 [÷] 2000 [x] [(] 1 [+] 20 [%] [)] [=] display answer 24.00
