Answer:

#50/100xx32#

Explanation:

Note that #50% and 50/100# are the same thing. That being so it must mean that:

#50 color(white)("d")ubrace(color(white)("dd")% color(white)("d"))xx32#

#50 color(white)("d")obrace(xx1/100)xx32#

So % is the same as #xx1/100# including the multiplication sign.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
#50/100xx32#

So the mathematical #ul("expression")# (no equals sign) is:

#50/100xx32#
