What is the slope of the line that passes through the pair of points?
(-5/3, -1)and (-2, 9/2)

A.2/33
B.-2/33
C.-33/2
D.33/2
I think it is D?

• math - Ms. Sue -

(9/2 + 1)/(-2 + 5/3) = 11/2 / -1/3 = -33/2

looks like you lost a - sign somewhere.

The 2nd point is above and to the left of the 1st, so the line has a negative slope.

• math - Ms. Sue -

you are right - I understand where I lost it now...thanks
