Better to write p ~ some_function_of(X, B), and then note that the "~" is vague enough that undoing "some_function_of" isn't worth the effort.

The links he provides are sources for p ≈ some_better_function_of(X, B). Find those better functions before trying to invert them.
I stand corrected. Thanks for clarifying :)
