8200

For 1998 = ( 600 x 100 ) % = 8.82%.
6800

For 1999 = ( 525 x 100 ) % = 8.08%.
6500

For 2000 = ( 720 x 100 ) % = 9.23%.
7800

Shorter method?

I think by observing all denominator values in the above the calculation the value which is less comparing with every denominators.

5700 is less so 2001 is consider as highest year.
