I've always been terrible at working backwards from a formula.
units = 300 * (growingNumber^1.1)
The above formula determines how many units a certain item requires to complete. Each additional item increases in unit consumption to complete. My task is to determine a formula that will return the total number of items that can be built, given a certain number of units.
The above formula produces:
If a person has 5008 units, he can then produce 5 total Items (300+643+1005+1378+1762 = 5008).
How can I create a formula to determine that 5 total items can be produced with 5008 units, without actually calculating up every unit cost per item?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
