"The difference (-) or 20 and a number divided by 2 (x/2)"

So 20 - (x/2)

No .. what you have written is ''20 times a number'' divided by 2

The correct answer depends on what you mean.

The difference of 20 and a number ... divided by 2 .. is (20 - X) / 2

or

The difference of 20 and ... a number divided by 2 .. is 20 - (X/2)

"difference" means subtraction so I would say: x-20 / 2 but I don't know, that's what google says.
