need help simplifying
I'm working on some online homework and I've tried answering this question twice (max 3 tries) and I think I have the right answer now, but I'd like to be sure. Can this be simplified any further? Thanks!

(Wait) If its an online test you are giving than its not allowed in the forum

(Hi)
$

\frac{\frac{1}{t+9}}{\frac{1}{t+9} - 4}
$

$\frac{\frac{1}{t+9}}{\frac{1-4(t+9)}{t+9}}$

$

\frac{1}{1-4t-36}
$

$
\frac{-1}{4t+35}
$
