#### Answer

Yes, the coordinate given is a solution to the equation.

#### Work Step by Step

We start with the given equation: $y=-2x+5$ We plug in the values for $x$ and $y$ given in the coordinates: $1=-2(2)+5$ We simplify the right side of the equation: $1=-4+5$ $1=1$ Since the equation checks, the coordinate given is a solution to the equation.
