To calculate the *expansion number*, divide the denominator of the expanded fraction () by the denominator of the first fraction (1):

Expansion Number = 4 ÷ 2 = 2

**Step 2: Calculate the numerator**

To calculate the *numerator* of the second fraction, multiply the numerator of the first fraction (2) by the expansion number (2):

Numerator = 1 × 2 = 2
