    To do this problem, you have to umm…. Plug the numbers into each of the given equation until L. H. S.=R. H. Sthe answer to this problem is… D. Y=-6 x — 5Lets check (2,-17) Substituting y=-17 and x=2, we get,-17=-6 (2) -5-17=-12 — 5-17=-17 (5 , -35) Substituting y=-35 and x=5, we get,-35=-6 (5) — 5-35=-30 — 5-35=-35So, the answer is D
