"Is" means  '='

"Of" means "multiply"

32% = .32

"What"   = x

So we have

43.7 = .32*(x)     divide both sides by .32

43.7 / .32 = x  = 136.5625

And there's the answer

$$\begin{array}{|l|l|}
32\% & 100\%\\
0.32 & 1.00\\
43.7 & 136.5625\\

\end{array}$$

 

p.s. that's just me testing this new LaTex function
