$\frac{1}{2}$

#### Explanation:

$\setminus \sqrt{0.25}$

$\setminus \sqrt{\frac{1}{4}}$

$\setminus \frac{\sqrt{1}}{\setminus} \sqrt{4}$

$\frac{1}{\setminus} \sqrt{4}$

$\frac{1}{2}$

Just another way (useful trick!): $\text{ } \sqrt{0.25} = \frac{1}{2}$

#### Explanation:

Suppose you did not know that $0.25 = \frac{1}{4}$

You would very likely know that $0.25 = \frac{25}{100}$

So $\sqrt{0.25} = \sqrt{\frac{25}{100}} = \frac{\sqrt{25}}{\sqrt{100}}$

Giving $\frac{5}{10} = \frac{1}{2}$
