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 m and n values of the given point into the given equation to obtain: $4m-5n=7 \\4(3)-5(-1)=7 \\12-(-5)=7 \\12+5 = 7 \\17\ne7$ 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.
