This is an example of a 'Symbolism' question - the prompt 'makes up' a math symbol, tells you what it means, then asks you to perform a calculation using it. When dealing with these types of symbols, it often helps to jot down a few examples, so that you understand the work that will be required of you when you deal with the actual question that is asked.

Here, we're told that [X] is the LEAST INTEGER greater than or equal to X. Thus...

[2] = 2 [.5] = 1 [-1.5] = -1 Etc.

When we're told that [X/2] = 0, this implies that whatever is inside the symbol is a limited range that is LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO 0....

For example: [0] = 0 [-.5] = 0 [-.9999] = 0 Etc.

With this information, finding the value of X shouldn't be too hard...which answer will fit this pattern when you plug it into [X/2]?

If [x] denotes the least integer greater than or equal to x and [x/2] = 0, which of the following could be the value of x?

A. -2 B. -3/2 C. 1/2 D. 1 E. 2

Since [x] denotes the least integer greater than or equal to x This means x = I , if x is an integer and x = I x = i+1, if x is not an integer and x = i + d where i is integral part of x and d i decimal part of x
