Note: Plus signs and minus signs mean different things.

1 + 1/2 x (one PLUS one half x, which is what you have) is NOT the same as 1 - x/2 (one MINUS one half x)

However, I included the actual answer. Which I feel is a little more respectable than slapping down a link and a wink face. But again, yes, I did mistake you for ozo.
