## Algebra 1: Common Core (15th Edition)

In the equation $y=mx+c$, m is the slope. The slope is $-3$ in cases A and B. Substituting values, 2 for x and 5 for y, Case A: $5=-3(2)+17$ is not true, so (2,5) does not lie on that line. Case B: $5=-3(2)+11$ is true, so this line passes through (2,5). Answer: B
