I would think the answer would be 2: 2x1x1

(two times the half of two twice). Not so?

What is 2 times the half of 2 twice?

Work backwards

"2 twice"

4

"half of"

THe teaser was easy...the wording just made it tricky.

Here's how I got it:

1/2 of 2 = 1

1 twice is 2

2 x 2 = 4

Easy but fun!

1/2 of 2 = 1

1 twice is 2

2 x 2 = 4

Easy but fun!
