**Denominator**

The *denominator* is the
bottom part of a fraction.
For example, in the fraction 3/4, the denominator is 4.

The number on the top is called the numerator.
The denominator is the number of parts that you cut something into.
For example, if you cut a pizza into 4 pieces
(the denominator), and you get 3 pieces (the numerator), then you got 3/4 of the pizza.

Now, here's a question for you:

In the fraction 7/13, what is the denominator?
