not a solution

#### Work Step by Step

An ordered pair is a solution of an equation if its coordinates satisfy the equation itself. Substitute the x and y values of the given point into the given equation to obtain: $5x-3y=15 \\5(0)-3(5)=15 \\0-15=15 \\-15\ne15$ Since the coordinates of the given point do not satisfy the given equation, then the given point is NOT a solution of the given equation.
