We don't say "How is.....like?"

The original sentence could say:

Readers can build up a clear idea/picture of how a formal business letter should look...

OR

Readers can build up a clear idea/picture of what a formal business letter should be like...

OR

Readers can build up a clear idea/picture of what a formal business letter should look like...
