# What should be added to 1/4 to get 4/9?

The given question is based on the subtraction of fractions.

## Answer: 7/36 should be added to 1/4 to get 4/9.

The required number can be determined by subtracting the given number from the sum.

**Explanation:**

Let the required number be x.

x + 1/4 = 4/9

x = 4/9 - 1/4

x = [16 - 9] / 36

x = 7/36

Thus, the required number is 7/36 which should be added to 1/4 to get 4/9.
