#### Answer

$\frac{9}{100}$

#### Work Step by Step

We are given the decimal .09. In order to write this decimal as a fraction, we can divide .09 by 1 (which is equivalent to having .09 as the numerator and 1 as the denominator). $.09\div1=\frac{.09}{1}$ Next, we multiply both the numerator and denominator by factors of 1 until both have no decimal points and are in simplest form. $\frac{.09}{1}=\frac{.09\times100}{1\times100}=\frac{9}{100}$ This fraction is in simplest form.
