Martha is repairing her bike and wants to remove a bolt that measures 2/4 of an inch. She cannot find a wrench in her tool box labeled 2/4. Since wrenches are always stamped with simplified fractions, what size wrench should Martha use?

2/4 can be simplified by dividing top and bottom number by 2

like this 2 divided by 2 =2/2= 1

and 4 divided by 2 =2

so 2/4 =1/2 (half)
