Hi!
Can the following function be simplified any further?
[(2^0.5)(N^-0.5)]/2
If the - wasn't around i know it would simplify to (1/2)(sqrt(2N)), but I forget if there is a rule for this...
Thanks!

You've got:
$\displaystyle \frac{2^\frac{1}{2}}{2 \times n^ \frac{1}{2}}$ right now (moving the negative exponent to the denominator and making it positive.)
$\displaystyle \frac{2^\frac{1}{2}}{2}$ simplifies to $\displaystyle \frac{1}{2^\frac{1}{2}}$ (by subtracting the exponents of powers with the same bases).
This gives, essentially, $\displaystyle \frac{1}{\sqrt{2n}}$.
