Is anyone familiar with this formula for figuring out percent? How it would work?

p/100 = of/is

I was going to say I don't know what the of/is means

If p is the percentage, dividing it by 100 gives you the equivalent fraction. That may be what your teacher is probably trying to say with that formula.
