2 1/4

Explanation:

Divide 4 1/2 by 2 since he plays twice a week.

4 1/2 = 9/2 Divide 9/2 by 2/1 This gives

$\frac{9}{2} / \frac{2}{1}$
Multiply both the numerator and denominator by the inverse of 2/1 which is 1/2

$\frac{\frac{9}{2} \times \frac{1}{2}}{\frac{2}{1} \times \frac{1}{2}}$ The denominator becomes 1 leaving

$\left(\frac{9}{2} \times \frac{1}{2}\right)$ This results in

$\left(\frac{9}{4}\right)$ This gives

2 1/4
