Determine whether (0, 5) is a solution for y=3x-5.

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
