1/2  divided by 2 =  1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4

OR

1/2= .5   so  .5 divided by 1/2 = .25

1/2 divided by 2 can also be written as 1/2*1/2 which equals 1/4

To find half divided by 2 you should first put it into an equation form

by putting in to an equation form you should get

1/2  ÷  2/1 now change 2/1 to to 1/2

By changing 2/1 to 1/2 you should get

1/2 X 1/2 now multiply these two fractions

By multiplying these two fraction you should get

 = 1/4 which is your answer
