Let $$[x]=\frac{x^2+1}{2}$$ and $$(y)=\frac{3y}{2}$$, for all integers $$x$$ and $$y$$. If $$m=(2)$$, [m] is equal to which of the following?
A. 13/8
B. 5/2
C. 15/4
D. 5
E. 37/2

Since $$(y)=\frac{3y}{2}$$ then $$m=(2)=\frac{3*2}{2}$$ --> $$m=(2)=3$$. So the question becomes: [m]==?

Now, since $$[x]=\frac{x^2+1}{2}$$ then $$=\frac{3^2+1}{2}=5$$.

Hope it's clear.
