Which number(s) can be placed in the empty cell so that the table of values

satisfies the definition of a function?

A.) -5

B.) -1

C.) 0

D.) 2

E.) 11

F.) 17

The following numbers could satisfy the definition of a function:

The following numbers would

B.) -1 because the input -1 already pairs with the output 5

C.) 0 because the input 0 already pairs with the output -9

E.) 11 because the input 11 already pairs with the output -1

F.) 17 because the input 17 already pairs with the output 5
