    So do it as tenofthem said.

    0.4=2/5,
     x^{0.4} = 2.3076 

x^{\frac25} = 2.3076 

 x^{\frac25 \times \frac52} = 2.3076^{\frac52}

    Sorry, i can't give you the answer here. But infact my previous post makes the answer very obvious.

      x^{\frac25 \times \frac52} = 2.3076^{\frac52} 

x = 2.3076^{\frac52}

    Can you do it now?

    Hint: use a calculator
