$[\frac {x \times 100}{104}] + [\frac {x \times 100 \times 100}{104}] = 3,50,500$
$\frac {x \times 25}{26} + \frac {x \times 625}{676} = 3,50,500$
$\frac {x \times 25}{26} [\frac {1 + 25}{26}] = 3,50,500$
$\frac {x \times 25}{26} [\frac {51}{26}] = 3,50,500$
$x = \frac{3,50,500 \times 676 }{25 \times 51} = 1, 85,833.72 = 1,85,834$
