Work Step by Step

Step 1: The expression to be solved is $\frac{3}{2}\times\frac{1}{2}-\frac{1}{2}$ Step 2: The BODMAS rule states that we should first perform multiplication followed by subtraction. Step 3: Therefore, $(\frac{3}{2}\times\frac{1}{2})-\frac{1}{2}$ Step 4: $(\frac{3}{4})-\frac{1}{2}$ Step 5: $(\frac{3}{4})-\frac{1\times2}{2\times2}$ Step 6: $(\frac{3}{4})-\frac{2}{4}$ Step 7: $\frac{3-2}{4}$ Step 8: $\frac{1}{4}$
