If the bottom note of on the time signature (those 2 numbers stacked on each other at the beginning of the piece) is a 4, which it often is, then a half note has 2 beats. The number at the bottom represents which note makes up a beat (4 for quarter, 2 for half, etc.). The top notes represents how many notes per measure (the space between the vertical lines). A 4 over a 4 means that each beat represents a quarter note and there are 4 beats per measure. A 2 over a 2 means that a half note is worth 1 beat and that there are 2 beats (half notes) per measure.
