    I tried all of them and they didn't seem to work, if you could explain how to do it right, that would be awesome!:)

    A point will be a solution if the equation is true for the given values of x and y. Each of the choices is an ordered pair, where the first number is the x value and the second is the y: (x,y). What did you do to check each solution?

    Y=-3 and x=1 then -3=2*1-5

    For each of the choices, replace x in the original equation with the first value in the ordered pair. Then, simplify the equation (multiply the new x by 2 and subtract 5), and see if it's equal to the second value in the ordered pair.
