Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

one half of a number is equal to 14 can be translated mathematically as:

Let the number be x

then

1/2 * x=14

x/2=14

multiply both sides by 2

2*x/2=14*2

      x=28 so this is the number

checking answer

 1/2 of 28=14


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
