Translate the question using the percent translation table.
$$\frac{23.5}{100} \times \frac{51}{100} \times 9.8$$ is slightly
less than $$\frac{25}{100} \times \frac{50}{100} \times 10 = \frac{10}{8} = 1.25$$
Note that since we increased 23.5 to 25 and 9.8 to 10, the correct answer should be **close to but somewhat less than **1.25.
