For this math problem there were five squares. The first one was 1/1 and the next one was 2/3 so if you notice that the numerator is *2 and the denominator is *3 so that is how the next square is 4/9
So if you keep on going you will get up to 64/729 for this problem but it is weird how 1/1 can get all the way up to 64/729 by multiplying the numerator by 2 and the denominator by 3.
