"Sounds like someone just got their homework done for them."

But none of them explained the how of it to her.

When you say 1/2 times 1/2 you multiply the top part of the fractions (in this case 1 x 1) and multiply the bottom part of the fractions (in this case 2 x 2). You then put the top result (1 x 1 = 1) over the bottom result (2 x 2 = 4) getting the answer of 1/4.
