  • 1/2x^2

  • 1 / 2 x * x = x^2 / 2

  • x times 1/2 x means 1/2x*x(1/2 x square)

  • x * 1/(2x) = x/(2x) = 1/2

    The varying answers you’re recieving are due to the amgibuous way of reading 1/2x. It can be read as 1/(2x) or (1/2)*x

    x * (1/2)x = (1/2)x^2

  • x/2

  • 1/2x^2, Because x times x is x^2, and you divide it by 2

  • 1/2

    You devide the x with the other x.

    Imagine that the x= 5 for example, the result would be 5 (1) / 5 (2) .. the 5 goes away with the other 5 and the result is 1/2.

  • My question would be “What is 1/2x?”

    Is it meant to be :-

    (i) (1/2) x ?

    OR is it meant to be

    (ii) 1/(2x) ?

    (i)

    x (1/2) x = x ² / 2

    (ii)

    x [ 1/(2x) ] = x / (2x) = 1/2

    PS

    You MUST use brackets.

  • (1/2)x^2

    or do you mean…

    1/2x * x = 1x/2x = 1/2

  • well what the hell is X
