OF is used as a multiplication operation.

#### Explanation:

The term OF is used as a multiplication operation. For example

one may say 20%" of "300

as 20%=20/100

20%" of "300=20/100xx300=20/100xx300

or one may use OF as in

$\frac{3}{7} \text{ of } 343$ $-$ and again it means multiplication

$\frac{3}{7} \text{ of } \frac{91}{125} = \frac{3}{7} \times \frac{91}{125} = \frac{3}{\cancel{7}} ^ 1 \times {\cancel{91}}^{13} / 125 = \frac{39}{125}$
