    on top

    Hi

    If I want to sell as many products/items as I have paid for them can I say then: I just want to come out on top (meaning I just want to get back as much as I invested in it)

    thanks

    Re: on top

    Not "on top" for that.

    If you want to have thing be equal, then say "I just want to break even."

    If you want to make a bit more than you spent, say "I'd like to come out a bit ahead."

    If you get back what you invested, and only what you invested, that's called "breaking even". In this case, you could say "I just want to break even".

    If you come out on top, then you are successful, which could mean you've profited.
