#### Answer

Therefore, our equation for the inverse variation is y=−51/x or xy=−51

#### Work Step by Step

Our equation for an inverse variation is y=kx. Therefore, we need to solve for k by plugging in our values for x and y.
−3=k/17
We multiply both sides by 17 to solve for k:
−3×17=k/17×17
−51=k
k=−51
Therefore, our equation for the inverse variation is y=−51/x or xy=−51
