1$\frac{8}{9}$
First, we must remember that an improper fraction is a fraction that has a numerator grater than a denominator. To convert an improper number to a mixed number, divide the denominator into the numerator and write the mixed number in the following format: $$quotient \frac{remainder}{denominator}$$ For the mixed number, when we divide the denominator $17$ into the numerator $9$, $$17 \div 9$$ we get the quotient to be $1$ and the remainder to be $8$ Hense, the required mixed number is 1$\frac{8}{9}$.
