The easiest way of approaching this problem, in my opinion, is to change all of the fractions to decimals.

Your first problem (98/983 of 1/2%) in decimal form is 0.09969 x 0.005. Using my handy calculator, the answer is 0.0004984.

Please check back here to see how other teachers solve this problem.
