It depends on how it is written. English words are ambiguous.

1/(2/9) = 9/2 = 4.5

(1/2)/9 = 1/18

The answer depends on what you mean by "one divided by two divided by nine".

(one divided by 2) divided by 9:

(1/2)/9 = 1/18

or one divided by (2 divided by 9):

1/(2/9) = 4.5

English grammar is not suitable to the task of communicating mathematical expressions clearly and unambiguously which is why you should always use the proper mathematical symbology for the task.

Well 1 divided by 2 is 0.5 and 0.5 divided by 9 is approximately 0.056.
