    Hint turn 2 1/4 to an improper fraction then multiply by 1/9

    another way to do it is to change 2 to 1/4 's 2 = 8/4 so 8/4 + 1/4 = ?

    dividing by 9 is the same as multiplying by 1/9 , so we have |dw:1441746073678:dw|

    you need the greatest common factor that will divide into both 9 and 36 3 will divide into both but its not the highest
