Tell me how u did it so I can show my work or send a pic of ur work I forgot how to do this and u probaly think I'm stupid and this is easy
First you can make all the numbers decimals. (or fractions, but decimals is easiest in my opinion)
A. 4/9 = 0.444444...
B. 9/20 = 0.45
D. 2/5 = 0.4
Put the numbers from least to greatest: 0.4, 0.43, 0.4444..., 0.45
You can then plot these numbers on a number line
0.4 0.43 0.4444... 0.45
-1 0 1
From this line you can see that 0.4 is farthest to the left.
Go back to your original numbers. 0.4 = 2/5 = D
The answer is D. 2/5
Hope this helps!
