How do i prove 0.5kx2=elastic energy?

2. Relevant equations

0.5kx2=elastic energy

Energy in= Energy out

3. The attempt at a solution

I understand how to use the formula but what i dont understand is where the formula comes from. I am guessing it has to do with Fx=Kx but am unsure how K=F then.
