$\displaystyle 1720976(1 + x) = 1754000$

$\displaystyle 1720976 + 1720976x = 1754000$

$\displaystyle 1720976x = 1754000 - 1720976$

$\displaystyle 1720976x = 33024$

$\displaystyle x = \frac{33024}{1720976}$

$\displaystyle x \approx 0.019189111$

(at least I'm assuming you want a decimal answer for this.)
