Wow no comments. Well that was easy if you read the question correctly. I liked it, I like math. Good one

invert the 1/2 to 2/1 then multiply

64/1 * 2/1 = 128

invert the 1/2 to 2/1 then multiply

64/1 * 2/1 = 128

EASY

That was way too easy....divide 64 by .5 or one half.....

If you didn't know that dividing by one half is the same as multiplying by two, it wouldn't be as easy, unless you used a calculator.

GREAT TEASER THOUGH
