\(\cfrac { (39,897)(0.0096) }{ 198.76 } \approx \cfrac { \left( 40,000 \right) \left( 0.01 \right) }{ 200 } \approx \cfrac { \left( 400 \right) \left( 0.01 \right) }{ 2 } \approx \left( 200 \right) \left( 0.01 \right) \approx \left( 2\ast { 10 }^{ 2 } \right) \left( 1\ast { 10 }^{ 2 } \right) \approx 2\)
