##### What is solution of 0.5x ...? ___________________________________________

```    x(1/2), 1/2 * x
```
##### Explanation

Notice that all given answers options are in fraction form therefore we have to convert 0.5x into fraction form. and in given options fraction bar '___' is use as '/' or ÷ actually '___', '/' and '÷' has same meaning divide.

```
1
We know that 0.5 or .5 is --- = 1/2
2

5     1
or 0.5 = --- = --- = 1/2 (in words one half)
10    2

Therefore

1
0.5x = - x	or
2

x
= --- 	or
2

= x/2  	or

= (1/2)x   or

= x (1/2)
```
```
Actually 1/2x  or 1/(2x) or (2x)^-1 or 1 ÷ 2x

1
means ----- which is not equal to 0.5x or x/2 or 1/2 * x
2x
```

we should also notice that here x is as nominator in 0.5x and from given option x is as nominator only in 2nd and 3rd option x(1/2), 1/2*x.

```       (x  is  N O M I N A T P O R )
/      |        \
/       |         \
/        |          \
/         |           \
0.5 x         x(1/2)    1/2*x
```

but x is at denominator in given four option 1/2x, 1/(2x), (2x)^(-1)

```         (x  is  D E N O M I N A T O R )
/       |       \
/        |        \
/         |         \
/          |          \
1/2x        1/(2x)         (2x)^(-1)
```

Therefore correct answer from given option is x (1/2) and 1/2 * x.
