[SOLVED] Can anyone walk me through this problem?
I'm trying to figure out how to do this problem. I know that I need to multiply by the reciprocal, but I don't understand where they got the 2 in the numerator from. Could someone please walk me through it step-by-step? Thank you

Hi

$\frac{1-\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}}{2} = \frac{1}{2}-\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}} = \frac{2}{4}-\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}}$
