300/ x dollars * 1/2
the division gives us how many jelly beans per dollar. the if we multiply by 1/2 or 50/100 dollars we get the number of jelly beans for 50 cents.

x dollars = 300 jellybeans
=> 1 dollar = 300 / x
=> 0.5 dollars = (300 / x)*0.5 = 150 / x jellybeans

Lets say for example that 300 jellybeans is equal to $30.
You would divide 300 by 30 dollars and get the rate, 10 jellybeans for $0.10
You can just solve it with mental math now. 10 beans for 10 cents = 50 beans for 50 cents
of course the rate will change depending on how much the jellybeans cost so you can't really answer this question with the information given

300 divided by x dollars = No of Jelly beans you can get for one dollar.
Therefore, for 50 cents you will have to first divide the number of jelly beans you can get for one dollar.
Example 300 jelly beans cost say 10 dollars
So for one dollar you get 300 / 10 = 30 Jelly beans
So for 50 cents (half of a dollar) it will be half of 30 Jelly beans i.e. 15 Jelly Beans.
Solution 300/x$ x.5
However there is not enough information in this problem to get a purely numerical answer.
