Answer:

see a solution process below;

Explanation:

#9.8%# of #1200#

Let the number be #x#

Hence;

#9.8%# of #1200 = x#

Recall; #9.8 = 98/10 and 9.8%= 9.8/100#

Therefore;

#98/10%# of #1200 = x#

#98/(10 xx 100)# of #1200 = x#

#98/1000# of #1200 = x#

Note that the of signifies multiplication..

#98/1000 xx 1200 = x#

#98/1000 xx 1200/1 = x#

#98/(10cancel(00)) xx (12cancel(00))/1 = x#

#(98 xx 12)/10 = x#

#1176/10 = x#

#117.6 = x#
