**-2/9, -0.9, -1.7, -4/7**

**Of the number listed above, which number is the greatest?**

-0.9

-4/7

-1.7

-2/9

*Correct Answer : D*

The initial step is to convert the decimal options to fractions. Then, we find the LCM of the denominators of all fractions, which will be used to compare the values of the given options.

-0. becomes -9/10

-1.7 becomes -17/10

Then, the resulting denominators are 9, 10, and 63. Their LCM of 630 is used to multiply each fraction.

-2/9*630=-140

-9/10*630=-567

-17/10*630=-1071

-4/7*630=-360

From the calculations above, -140 is the greatest value of all the values. Thus, -2/9 is the greatest number.
