Hi, Im very much a newbie so please be gentle with me as I need some advice.

Its only a small query in my eyes but I haven't got a clue. My GF has just started riding a bike to keep fit. She had a puncture on the weekend so yep you guessed it I have the job of fixing it!

I've removed the wheel and the inner tube but the sizes are confusing me. It states I need a 26 x 1.5/1.75 replacement on the wheel; does it have to be that size, or can it be anything around it. I've been looking online and you can buy ones for example that are 26 x 1.1/1.5 or 26 x 1.75/2.2 ...... so is the 1.5/1.75 a guide or does it have to be exactly what its asking for....

sorry if I sound dumb as this is all new to be so any help is gratefully received :D
