1. well, just plug in the x value and see whether you get the y value.

For example, when x=0,

2*0 - 3 = -3 Nope, You want 3.

Now try the others. One will work.

2. Still Don't Get It Minion? Lets Work It Out:

A. (-2, 7)
2 * -2 = -4
-4 - 3 = -7
So, This Wouldn't Be Right Because You're Looking For 7, not -7.

B. (0, 3)
2 * 0 - 3 = -3
So, This Wouldn't Be Right Because Your're Looking For 3, not -3

C. (-4, -11)
2 * -4 = -8
-8 - 3 = -11
So, This IS Right Because The Final Result Matches The Result to This Answer Choice.

D. (5, -7)
2 * 5 = 10
10 - 3 = 7
So, This Wouldn't Be Right Because You're Looking For -7, Not 7.

So, The Correct Answer To This Question Is: C. (-4, -11)

Have A Nice Day!
