# What is half of 2550?

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking for the result of dividing 2550 by 2, which is a straightforward mathematical operation.

The result of dividing 2550 by 2 is $1275$.

#### Steps to Solve

1. Set up the division To solve the problem, we need to divide 2550 by 2. This is written mathematically as:

$$\frac{2550}{2}$$

1. Perform the division Now, we carry out the division. When we divide 2550 by 2, we can do this step by step:
• First, take 2 from 2 (inside the 2550): 2 goes into 2 one time, so we write 1.
• Subtract 2 from 2, leaving 0.
• Bring down the next digit (5): Now we have 05.
• 2 goes into 5 two times (2 x 2 = 4), which gives us a remainder of 1.
• Bring down the next digit (5): Now we have 15.
• 2 goes into 15 seven times (2 x 7 = 14), which gives us a remainder of 1.
• Bring down the next digit (0): Now we have 10.
• 2 goes into 10 five times (2 x 5 = 10), leaving 0 remainder.

Putting it all together gives us:

$$2550 \div 2 = 1275$$

1. Write the final answer Now that we have computed the division, we can finalize our answer.

The result of dividing 2550 by 2 is:

$$1275$$
