Let the number be x. According to the question,

\( \left(x - \frac{1}{2} \right) \times \frac{1}{2} = \frac{1}8{}\)

On multiplying both sides by 2, we obtain

\( \left(x - \frac{1}{2} \right) \times \frac{1}{2} \times 2= \frac{1}{8}\times 2\)

x - \(\frac{1}{2} = \frac{1}{4}\)

On tranposting \(\frac{1}{2}\) to R.H.S, we obtain

\(x = \frac{1}{4} + \frac{1}{2}\)

= \(\frac{1+2}{4} = \frac{3}{4}\)

Therefore, the number is \(\frac{3}{4}\).

Solve the inequations and graph their solutions on a number line – 4 ≤ 4x < 14, x ε N

Solve (\( \dfrac{x}{3}\)) + (\( \dfrac{1}{4}\)) < (\( \dfrac{x}{6}\)) + (\( \dfrac{1}{2}\)), x ε W. Also represent its solution on the number line.

If the replacement set is {-3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3}, solve the inequation \(\dfrac {(3x – 1) }{2} < 2\). Represent its solution on the number line.

Solve the inequations (\( \dfrac{3}{2}\)) – (\( \dfrac{x}{2}\)) > – 1, x ε N
