 Question 52690: Y=3x-4 (-3, -5) determine whether the ordered pair is a solution of the given equation. Please help me with this questionAnswer by funmath(2925)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!In order to determine if this ordered pair is a solution, substitute the appropriate values in for x and y into the equation and see if both sides equal. If the do, it's a solution. If not, it's not. In this case x=-3 and y=-5 The y=3x-4 becomes -5=3(-3)-4 -5=-9-4 -5=-13 Both sides are not equal, therefore (-3,-5) is not a solution of the given equation.
