Given : 1/4 of a number = 2
To find: 1/2 of n

Solution: 0.25 of n = 2
Or 25% of N = 2
Number = 2*100/25 = 8

Therefore: 1/2 of 8
=> 8*1/2
=> 4

Answer is D

A. \(\frac{1}{8}\)

B. \(\frac{1}{4}\)

C. 1

D. 4

E. 8


Solution:

Let n be the number. We can create equation:

1/4 x n = 2

n = 2 x 4

n = 8

Therefore, 1/2 of n is 1/2 x 8 = 4.

Answer: D
