Solve for x in y = x^z when you know Y and z

I have a measure for the average cost of product in the current year.

I have a measure for the average cost of product in 2018 (current year offset = -4). I am trying to solve the equation below:

 

Avg Cost 2018 * (x^4) = Avg Cost 2022. Is there a dax formula that solves for x?
