Time signatures tell you how many and what kind of notes per measure there are.
The number on top is the number of notes per measure, and the bottom number is what
kind of note. Let us explain further.

per measure. Then looking at the bottom number probably confused you. The bottom
number can be 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, etc. Look at this chart.
