agreeing with 'SmarterThanYou'\nany half cut into or divided twice or divided into 2 pieces is a quarter or 25% or 1/4\n50% = 50/100 or 1/2 divided by 2 (2/1) take the reciprocal now become 1/2 times 1/2 = 1/4

This problem is illogical. 50% equals 1/2 , but 2 does not equal 1/2 you idiot. If you divide by two, you either divide by two or MULTIPLY by 1/2. Hence, 1/2/2 = 1/4 or 25%.
