f(x) = 3x - 5

( x, y)

x is unknown here, but y is 22. y is the output of the function 3x - 5

so  y = 3x - 5

Since we know y = 22.

Substitute  to equation y = 3x - 5

                                    22 = 3x - 5

                                  22 + 5 = 3x 

                                    27 = 3x

                                     3x / 3 = 27/3

                                           x = 9

The solution is ( 9, 22) for the function y = 3x - 5.
