$$\frac{2.5}{2}=1.25$$

One half of 2.5 is the equivalent of saying what is 1/2 * 2.5. "Of" is referring to multiplication, in this case:

 $$\frac{1}{2}*\frac{2.5}{1}$$ Multiply the fractions together and then you are done! Remember, when multiplying fractions, simply multiply the numerator and denominator. $$\frac{2.5}{2}=1\frac{1}{4}=1.25$$
