153. it doesn't satisfy the breakeven unless x2=13.04%
We input a value for X2 to derive the value for X1 which satisfies the breakeven

Your matrix restates x1=.9618 -.9898*x2 as a tautology without testing its effect on BV=KV. The effect is KV+=18.4 (BV-=18.4) for every +1% change in x2. You might want to click the "Assume Linear Model" checkbox in Excel Solver's options, it's only y=mx+b vs. y=-mx+b (i.e., algebra).
