    Simple equation and only requires one step to solve. Remember, a number and a variable juxtaposed means multiplications.

    \frac{1}{2} s = \frac{7}{2} \\ \\\frac{(\frac{1}{2}s)}{\frac{1}{2}} = \frac{\frac{7}{2}}{\frac{1}{2}} \\ \\\\s = \frac{\frac{7}{2}}{\frac{1}{2}} \\ \\\\s = \frac{7}{2} * \frac{2}{1} \\ \\\\s = 7

    One step? I know. It seems more because I was slowing down the calculations for you so could understand everything happening. For someone who can do this in their sleep it would, for them, take one step.

    The answer is D. 7

    Multiply both sides by 2

    2*(1/2 s) = 2*(7/2)

    s = 7
