# Some of the factors of n^{2}/2 + n/2 are 1/2, n and (n+1). Is the given statement true or false

**Solution:**

The statement ‘Some of the factors of n^{2}/2 + n/2 are 1/2, n and (n+1)’ is true.

Given n^{2}/2 + n/2

Taking common terms,

n^{2}/2 + n/2 = n/2 (n + 1)

Further, this can also be written as,

= n × 1/2 × (n + 1)

**✦ Try This: **State true or false: the factors of 3x² - 5x is x

The given statement is true,

Given, 3x² - 5x = x( 3x - 5)

Since the given expression is expressed as product of ‘x’ and other term clearly x is a factor of the given expression
