# What number can you subtract half from to obtain a result of zero?

**Solution:**

The same number needs to be subtracted from the given number to get 0.

We need to find a number such that when we subtract half (1/2) from it, we will get 0.

We know that for any number x, x - x = 0

i.e, if we subtract the number from itself, we will get 0.

So, if we subtract half from half the result obtained will be 0.

\(\dfrac{1}{2} -\dfrac{1}{2} = 0 \)

Thus, half must be subtracted from half to obtain a result of zero.

## What number can you subtract half from to obtain a result of zero?

**Summary:**

We need to subtract half from half to obtain a result of zero.
