Explanation:
It depends on the measurement scale range, if it ranges from 0 to 20, usually 14 to 16.99 is equal to B.

X/100=15.38/20

Explanation:
As far as I remember,back in my college years in Pahlavi Univ. the system was American. They used to change our Iranian diploma grades system (0 -20) to A,B,C,D and F (0 - 100)by a proportinal equation.X/100=15.38/20 which X=76.9 almost equals to C+, and vice versa you can change an american grade back to Iranian e.g: 60/100=X/20 which becomesX=(20x60)/100 = 12 (the boarder grade between F and D. I hope this would be close to your question.
