m<9/2 & m>5/4 (using cross lines) so the only answer left is 7/2

The slope we are looking for will be between the slope of the red and blue line

Slope of red line = \(\frac{9 - (-9)}{2- (-2)} = 18/4 = 9/2 = 4.5\)
Slope of blue line = \(\frac{5- (-5)}{4- (-4)} = 10/8 = 5/4 = 1.25\)

Only Option C is within the range

Which of the following could be the slope of a line that passes between points A and B on segment AB and passes between points C and D on segment CD?

A. 1/2
B. 5/4
C. 7/2
D. 9/2
E. 5


slope line AD (most inclined) < slope X < slope line BC (less inclined)
slope line AD (4,5) and (-4,-5) = 5+5/4+4 = 10/8 = 5/4
slope line BC (2,9) and (-2,-9) = 9+9/2+2 = 18/4 = 9/2
5/4 < slope X < 9/2

Answer (C)
