Additional answer to puzzle

This puzzle -- Can you arrange the numerals 1 to 9 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9) in a single fraction that equals exactly 1/3 (one third)? -- shows only one answer, but there are two correct answers:
1. 5823/17469, and
2. 5832/17496
Perhaps the answer should be updated to show the second correct answer?
