Both are solutions

Work Step by Step

We are given that $-6x+5y=-6$. In order to see whether each ordered pair is a solution of the given equation, we can plug in the ordered pair to the equation. For (1,0): $-6\times1+5\times0=-6$ So, (1,0) is a solution. For (2,$\frac{6}{5}$): $-6\times2+5\times\frac{6}{5}=-12+6=-6$ So, (2,$\frac{6}{5}$) is a solution.
