    that depends... is the question \[\frac 12 a^2 - \frac 14a\]or\[\frac 1{2a^2} - \frac 1{4a}\]

    I am working on polynomials. The question says to "Evaluate the expression" 1/2a^2 - 1/4a For a= 4

    How do you get your equation to look like a real exponent on here?

    is the a in the denominator or not?

    is it \[\huge \frac 12 a^2 - \frac 14a\] or \[\huge \frac 1{2a^2} - \frac 1{4a}\]
