104% is aso 104/100. We can form an equation.

$$\frac{104}{100}x=598\\ 104x=59800\\ x=575$$

Therefore x=575.

$$104\% \cdot x = 598$$, where $$x$$ will be our answer. We can express $$104\%$$ as a fraction out of $$100$$. This is equal to $$\frac{104}{100} = \frac{26}{25}$$. Therefore, $$\frac{26}{25} \cdot x = 598$$. We multiply each side by $$25$$ to get rid of the fraction on the left hand side. Therefore, $$26 \cdot x = 598 \cdot 25$$. Now, we will divide each side by $$26$$, so we can isolate $$x$$

$$x = \frac{598 \cdot 25}{26}$$

Now it's simple arithmetic. This yields the answer of $$\boxed{575}$$
