So let's solve

40,000x(9/10)^x = 23620

I will assume that the x after 40,000 is supposed to be a multiplication sign and not a variable,

If it is a variable you have an completely ridiculously hard equation to solve,

If we take it as

40,000(9/10)^x = 23620

then x = 5 is a solution, (too nice not be be that way)

so we want the population when x = 6

P = 40000((9/10)^6

= 21258
