Answer

67 inches from the side

Work Step by Step

We start by converting the wall's dimensions to inches (12 inches = 1 foot): 17*12+5=209 inches Next we subtract the length of the window: 209-75=134 Next we divide this "edge" length by two: 134/2=67 So the window should be placed 67 inches from either side.
