# 1/3 x 1/3 as a fraction

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking to multiply the fractions 1/3 and 1/3 and express the result as a fraction. This will involve applying the rule for multiplying fractions, which is to multiply the numerators together and the denominators together.

The answer is $$\frac{1}{9}$$.

The result of multiplying ( \frac{1}{3} ) and ( \frac{1}{3} ) is ( \frac{1}{9} ).

#### Steps to Solve

1. Multiply the Numerators

To multiply the fractions, we begin by multiplying the numerators together. For the fractions ( \frac{1}{3} ) and ( \frac{1}{3} ), the numerators are both 1.

So, we can perform the multiplication: $$1 \times 1 = 1$$

1. Multiply the Denominators

Next, we need to multiply the denominators together. The denominators for both fractions are 3.

Thus, we calculate: $$3 \times 3 = 9$$

1. Combine the Results

Now, we combine the results of our multiplications. The result is formed by putting the product of the numerators over the product of the denominators: $$\frac{1}{9}$$

The result of multiplying ( \frac{1}{3} ) and ( \frac{1}{3} ) is ( \frac{1}{9} ).
