# Percents: Percent Translation

To the nearest dollar, what is Bill's income, if Bill earns 26% of 49% of $98,264? Correct. [[snippet]] Translate your __Ballpark__ to an expression. > $$\displaystyle \frac{25}{100} \times \frac{50}{100} \times \98{,}265 = \frac{1}{4}\times \frac{1}{2} \times \98{,}265 = \frac{\98{,}265}{8}$$ Then ballpark 98,265 as about 100,000. > $$\displaystyle \frac{\100{,}000}{8} = \12{,}500$$ So the answer should be close to$12,500. Only one answer is particularly close, and that is B.
