If you are asking what I think you are asking, the correct answer is 1/3.
That would be the answer you get if you simplify 9/27.
The way you simplify a fraction is to divide both the top and the bottom by the largest number that will divide into both numbers exactly (leaving no remainder).
In the case of 9/27, 9 can divide both numbers exactly. 9/9 is, of course, 1. 27/9 is 3.
So once you divide both top and bottom by 9, you get 1/3.
That is the most simplified version of 9/27.

Yes, 1/3 is the simplest form of 9/27. Yet, if you want to generate other equivalent fractions, just multiply both the numerator and the denominator by the same number (which is the same as multiplying by 1). For example:
9/27 x 2/2 = 18/54
This can be done to generate equivalent fractions. Hope this is helpful :-).

To find an equivalent fraction you must either multiply or divide the numerator and denominator by the same number. So, 1/3 and 3/9 are both equivalent fractions. 1/3 however is in simplest form. There are many equivalent fractions to 9/27.
