    The bottom number tells you what kind of note gets one beat (4 means the quarter note gets 1 beat). The top number tells you the beats per measure.

    its its like 2/4 it means two beats in a measure, and the 4 note (quarter note) gets the beat.

    ...it's not a fraction. it's a time signature. and it's after the clef.

    and it represents what note gets the beat.
