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 \(\boxed{575}\)

1.04 x = 598

x = 598/1.04 = 575
