Point A lies somewhere within or on the square which has opposite corners at (0,0) and (2,2). Point B lies somewhere within or on the square which has opposite corners at points (4,2) and (5,3). What is the greatest possible value of the slope of the line containing points A and B? Express your answer as a common fraction.

you want the max delta y which is (3-0)=3

and the min delta x which is (4-2)=2

So the greatest slope is 3/2
