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.
