To determine if a point is a solution to an equation
 
you can subsitute the point in the equation to see if it makes the equation true that is equal
 
So let's do that and see what happens
 
x = 0 and y = 5 from (0,5)
 
y = 3x - 5
 
5 = 3(0) - 5
 
5 = - 5   This of course is not true so (0,5) is not a solution to the equation y = 3x - 5
