It is indeed "intense" if I can't figure out what you mean.

(1/9) * (24/25) = 24/225 = 0.10666

You're welcome. Your question was clear when you put it into words.

Please note the way we write such a problem on the computer.

Notice that you do not really need to do any calculating. I suspect that this is an exercise in estimation.

24/25 is just about one

so the answer is about 1/9

which is close to 1/10

so we are really talking about something around 0.1

which is a lot closer to zero than it is to the other choices.
