Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is this f'(x)=1/(2(x)^1/2) or f'(x)=1/(2x)^1/2 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, then you find the constant of integration by setting your antiderivative equal to 2 and evaluating where x = 1. Once you know the constant, you can evaluate f(1/2) like normal.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[f(x) = \int \frac{1}{2\sqrt{x}} dx = \sqrt{x} + C\]\[\sqrt{1}+C=2\] Thus C is 1 and \[f(\frac{1}{2}) = \sqrt{\frac{1}{2}} + 1\]
