Thanks very difficult to solve by hand ... using technology, I get $\displaystyle i \approx 1.88$ there is also a negative solution. attached is the graph of $\displaystyle y = 3910935 - \frac{734(x+1)^9}{x}$ zeros are solutions.
i = ~1.76335 ; 1.88 is way too high.
thanks for the answers. I think the solution was something like 1.12. I have to check that. But I was wondering if it was posible to leave the variable alone at one side of the equation.
No, not 1.12; it's 1.76335... 734 * 2.76335^9 / 1.76335 = 3910934.96976... Make it 1.763350003 to get 3910935.00132... By the way, you only need 1 set of brackets in your posted equation: 3910935 = 734(1 + i)^9 / i
Yes sorry. The number 3910935 is actually 3910.935 and for that number I Have i = 0,12 as an answer.

mmm Yes I have to re check the numbers on the problem.
