# How can I find three ordered pairs of the equation y=3x-5?

See below:

#### Explanation:

To add on to what @Ladybug said, here are some examples. Say I want $x = 7$. Plug that into the equation and get the resulting $y$ value:

$y = 3 x - 5$
$y = 3 \left(7\right) - 5$
$y = 21 - 5$
$y = 16$

So the first ordered pair would be $\left(7 , 16\right)$. You can choose any value for $x$, and find a result for $y$ to make an ordered pair.
