1/2 of sqrt(x) = 2x, which means that sqrt(x) = 4x
or x = 16x^2 -> divide by x
1=16x
x=1/16

sqrt(x)/2 = 2x, => sqrt(x) = 4x or x = 16x^2

x=1/16

A. 1/16
B. 1/4
C. 1/2
D. 2
E. 8


We can create the equation:

(1/2)√x = 2x

Squaring both sides of the equation, we have:

1/4(x) = 4x^2

x = 16x^2

1 = 16x

1/16 = x

Answer: A
