Answer:

#1/4# cup

Explanation:

There are two ways to express something divided by 2.

We can use division :

#1/2 div 2" is the same as " 1/2 div 2/1#

Use the method of dividing by a fraction #rarr " x by the reciprocal"#

#1/2 div 2/1 = 1/2 xx 1/2#

=#1/4#

We can use multiplication.

"A half of something is written as #1/2 xx ...#

"A half of a half" is #1/2 xx 1/2#

=#1/4#
