No, it can't be simplified.

#### Explanation:

In order to simplify, you need common factors in both the numerator and the denominator.

$18$ can be written as $2 \times 3 \times 3$
$25$ can be written as $5 \times 5$

So the fraction can be written as $\frac{18}{25} = \frac{2 \times 3 \times 3}{5 \times 5}$

And there are no numbers above and below that can be canceled.
