It's not an equation.  It's only a mathematical phrase, so we can not solve for "p".

ANSWER:  The expression is:
2p ÷ 7     or     \frac{2p}{7}


To solve for p, the problem should be like this:
The quotient of twice an unknown number p and 7 is 5/7.

2p/7 = 5/7
(7/2) 2p/7 = 5/7 (7/2)         (Multiply both sides of equation
                                           by the reciprocal of the coefficient
                                           of p)

p = 5/2
