(-3,1) is an ordered pair, but I bet your question asks which ordered pair works with an equation or system of equations.
 
y = 3x + 10
1 = 3(-3) + 10
1 = -9 + 10
1 = 1
0 = 0
Yes
 
y = 4x - 432
1 = 4(-3) - 432
1 = -12 - 432
1 = -444
0 = -445
No

Not unless they are written as an ordered pair, i.e., (-3, 1).
