78.4 or $\frac{392}{5}$

#### Explanation:

80% of a value is equal to $\frac{4}{5}$ of that same value (if we simplify $\frac{80}{100}$ ).

$\frac{80}{100} \ast x = \frac{4}{5} \ast x$

Therefore, to find 80% of 98, we substitute 98 as x and multiply it by $\frac{4}{5}$

$\frac{4}{5} \ast 98 = \frac{7840}{100} = \frac{392}{5} = 78.4$

We can choose to keep in fraction form if the answer is to be in exact values , or we can choose to convert the answer to a decimal.
