    Answer:

    \dfrac{17}{45}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Fraction on which Rosemary was planted =\dfrac{2}{9}

    Fraction on which dill was planted =\dfrac{2}{5}

    Let the fraction on which chives was planted=x

    Then:

    \dfrac{2}{9}+\dfrac{2}{5}+x=1\\$Since the LCM of 9 and 5 is 45\\We multiply all through by 45\\45\left(\dfrac{2}{9}\left)+45\left(\dfrac{2}{5}\right)+45x=45(1)$\\10+18+45x=45\\45x=45-28\\45x=17\\Divide both sides by 45\\x=\dfrac{17}{45}

    The fraction of the garden on which Chives was planted is \dfrac{17}{45}
