I am assuming you mean 8/9ths 4/6ths or 1/3rd if that is the case, 1/3rd is the smallest, followed by 4/6ths and then 8/9ths.

First convert to common denominator, which is 9.

8/9 = 8/9

4/6 = 6/9

1/3 = 3/9

Now compare the numerators in the common denominator fractions. The common denominator fraction with the smallest numerator is the smallest. The smallest is 3/9; so 1/3 is the smallest fraction.
