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
