$\frac{4}{9}$ or ${\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)}^{2}$

#### Explanation:

You could write $\frac{4}{9}$ as ${\left(\frac{2}{3}\right)}^{2}$, but this isn't really any simpler than the form you have the fraction on already.

See below:

#### Explanation:

Since the numerator and denominator have no common factors, this is the simplest form we can get it in.

Alternatively, we can convert it to a decimal. When fractions have a denominator of $9$, its decimal version will be the numerator repeated.

$\frac{4}{9}$ as a decimal would be equivalent to

$0. \overline{4}$
