express the complex number in standard form(that is like a+bi)

1/2+i

2+i/2-i

rationalize the denominator. I will do one:

(2+i)/(2-i)= 2+i)(2+i)/(2-i)(2+i)=

(2+i)^2/(2-i^2)= (4+4i+i^2)/3

you can complete it.

so is that the final answer

os is the final answer 8i+i^3/3

(2+i)/(2-i)

=(2+i)(2+i)/((2+i)(2-i))

=(4+4i+i²)/(2²-i²)

=(4+4i-1)/(4-(-1))

=(3+4i)/5

You can proceed along the same lines for the first problem.
