In fraction form, your expression looks like this:

$$\frac{\frac{1}{2}}{7}$$

To do this, we will have to utilize a rule with fractions. It states that $$\frac{\frac{a}{b}}{c}=\frac{a}{bc}$$. Applying this fraction rule alone is enough to solve this problem.

$$\frac{\frac{1}{2}}{7}=\frac{1}{2*7}=\frac{1}{14}=0.0\overline{714285}$$

Dividing by a number means multiplying the reciprocal of the number.

So 1/2 divided by 7 = 1/2 x 1/7 = 1/(2x7) = 1/14
