How to find n in the equation:
By trial and error I found that n=164. But is it possible to express n for a direct calculation? How did people solve such problems before the age of computers?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.
