A fraction of your money

A game for 2 players
You need some coins.
How to play a round
Player 1
Choose some coins to give to Player 2.
Now ask for a fraction of the money back.
“Give me a quarter of the money back.”
Player 2
Give that fraction of the money back.
Rules
If Player 2 gives the correct fraction back, they score 1 point.
If Player 2 is wrong, they score nothing.
If Player 2 can’t give the correct fraction back because it is impossible,
Player 1 loses a point. “I can’t give you a quarter of 22p. You lose a point.”
Now change roles. Play five rounds.
The player with the highest score wins.
