    Answer:

    let the no be X

    Step-by-step explanation:

    [X – 1/2] x 1/2 =3/8

    1/2 goes to RHS

    X -1/2 =3/8 x 2/1

    X – 1/2 =6/8

    1/2 goes to RHS

    X = 6/8 – 1/2

    X = 6/8 – 4/8

    X = 2/8

    X =1/4

    Answer:

    let the no. be x .

    so,

    (x – 1/2) × 1/2 = 3/8

    x – 1/2 = 3/8 × 2

    x – 1/2 = 3/4

    x = 3/4 + 1/2

    x = 5/4
