1 divided by what equals 2? In other words, you have 1 and you divide it by something and then you get 2. What is that something?
We will call that something "X". Here is the equation to find the solution:
First, multiply both sides by X to get rid of the X as denominator.
|1 = 2X|
Then, divide both sides by 2 to get X by itself as follows:
|0.5 = X|
Thus, the answer to "1 divided by what equals 2?" is 0.5.
Note that our answers are rounded to the nearest thousandth if necessary. You can divide 1 by 0.5 to check that we got the right answer.
