#### Answer

$1\frac{1}{4}$

#### Work Step by Step

First, we must substitute x into the expression: $(\frac{1}{2})^{2}+2(\frac{1}{2})$
Then, we solve by following order of operations, first multiplying and then adding:
$(\frac{1}{2})(\frac{1}{2})+\frac{2}{2}$
Multiplying the fractions $\frac{1}{4}+\frac{2}{2}$
Canceling out the fraction $\frac{1}{4}+1$
Adding the numbers together $1\frac{1}{4}$
