help me, how long will it take for a population of 6500 to reach 800 if there is a yearly decline of 900?

help me solve this rational equation, I need it right away. I know that it start with (6500)/(1+1600)= 4-1=3*800=2400.

    6500 - 800 = 5700 (population that needs to be lost)

    5700 / 900 = 6.333 years or 6 years 4 months

    This assumes a linear loss over the course of a year.
