# Percents: Percent Translation

The population of city A is 23.5% of city B and the population of city B is 51% of city C. If city C has 9.8 million people, which of the following is the closest approximation of city A’s population?
Correct. [[snippet]] 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.
