I agree with Mark. 2/4 gallon equals 1/2 gallon. So you still have 2 gallons left.

**Hi Gaby...lets try....**

**We have 2 1/2 and 2/4 -----> Notice that 2/4 can be reduced to 1/2**

**So we have 2 1/2 minus 1/2 ----> Notice the 1/2 on the 2 1/2 side...**

**= 2 1/2 minus 1/2 = 2 ----> Answer**

**Hope this helps!**
