    simple as I told you.. invert it.. it will be (a/2)^-1

    not its not.. (a/2)^-1 is in negative exponent.. you can further expand it like.. (a^-1)/(2^-1)

    so it means that it was to show only "a" in negative exponent.. not the whole value..

    you can solve it like... (2/a) = 2x (1/a) when you'll invert "a" you'll get that answer.. 2x(a)^-1
