Answer

$-5(17), -5(12), -2(17), -2(12)$

Work Step by Step

Because the numbers are negative, the absolute values will be in order from greatest to least when the numbers are written in order least to greatest. The numbers with -5 as a factor will be the smallest, as since the factors of 12 and 17 are not vastly different.
