Answer:

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.

#4/9# as a decimal would be equivalent to

#0.bar(4)#
