Depends a lot on the context. Worry not - if the Rx is as vague as that instead of an actual percentage, it's not immensely critical.

Generally when I use that type of Rx it's for one of a few possible reasons. One, it doesn't matter that much and being in the general range is good enough (more for metCons); two, it's for an exercise for which it's unlikely people will have a 1RM to reference so there's no point anyway; three, it's a combination of 1 and 2.
