The answer would be 32 pieces.
 
Let's take one yard.  How many 1/2 yard pieces can you get from one yard?
 
The answer is 2.  So, all you would have to do is multiply 2 by 16, and you would be able to have 32 half yard pieces from that 16 yards long rope.
 
Hope that helps!  Let me know if you have any questions.
