The relationship between x and y is

#### Explanation:

The way I read your question is that we can write the relation between x and y on the form

In this case we know that

In that case we can just plug in x=6 in the equation, in which case we get

An easy way of finding the same result is with a graph:

graph{y=5/2x [-9.67, 30.87, -1.92, 18.34]}

Reading off our graph we can see that the line goes through (2, 5) and (6, 1).
