Here's the formula for the slope between two points (a,b) and (c,d): \[\textrm{slope} = \frac{db}{ca}\] So, plug the numbers in: \[\textrm{slope} = \frac{db}{ca} = \frac{\frac{9}{2}(1)}{(2)(\frac{5}{3})} = \frac{\frac{11}{2}}{\frac{1}{3}} = \frac{33]{2}\] 33/2, or Choice D. Tell me if that all make sense.

\[\textrm{slope} = \frac{db}{ca} = \frac{\frac{9}{2}(1)}{(2)(\frac{5}{3})} = \frac{\frac{11}{2}}{\frac{1}{3}} = \frac{33}{2}\]
