# [NTG-context] maths simplifying fractions

Hi all, I am writing some maths exercises that include simplifying fractions. For that
reason I would like to cross out some numbers. Unfortunately overstrike doesn't do the
trick, eg with a 4 the overstrike is practically invisible.

Is there any way to get a diagonal stroke like the latex module "cancel" can do?

Thanks for any suggestions,
Martin

\frac{\overstrike{2}}{\overstrike{4}} = \frac{1}{2}
