If recycling 2,000 pounds of paper saves 17 trees, how many trees are saved when 5,000 pounds of paper are recycled?

The amount of paper recycled is directly proportional to the number of trees that
recycling saves. If recycling 2,000 pounds of paper saves 17 trees, how many trees are
saved when 5,000 pounds of paper are recycled?
