No, the given ordered pair is not a solution to the equation.

Work Step by Step

We start with the given equation: $y=7x-5$ We plug in the values for $x$ and $y$ given in the coordinates: $5=7(0)-5$ We simplify the right side of the equation: $5=0-5$ $5=-5$ Since the equation does not check, the ordered pair is not a solution of the equation.
