Answer for screen readers
The final answer is threeeighths (3/8) or 0.375.
Steps to Solve

Set up the division
Write the problem as a division of fractions:
$\frac{3}{4} \div 2$

Convert whole number to fraction
Convert the whole number 2 to a fraction by putting it over 1:
$\frac{3}{4} \div \frac{2}{1}$

Apply division rule
To divide fractions, multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction. The reciprocal of $\frac{2}{1}$ is $\frac{1}{2}$:
$\frac{3}{4} \times \frac{1}{2}$

Multiply fractions
Multiply the numerators and denominators:
$\frac{3 \times 1}{4 \times 2} = \frac{3}{8}$
The final answer is threeeighths (3/8) or 0.375.
More Information
The fraction 3/8 can also be expressed as a decimal 0.375 or as a percentage 37.5%. This operation effectively halves the original fraction 3/4, as dividing by 2 is the same as multiplying by 1/2.
Tips
A common mistake is to divide both the numerator and denominator by 2, which is incorrect. Remember, when dividing by a whole number, you can multiply the denominator by that number instead. Alternatively, convert the whole number to a fraction and then use the 'multiply by the reciprocal' rule.
