How do you determine if (-5, -4) is a solution of #9x - 4y = -6#? Algebra Graphs of Linear Equations and Functions Applications of Linear Graphs 1 Answer Meave60 Jul 3, 2015 Substitute #-5# for #x# and #-4# for #y#. Solve the equation. If both sides are equal, then #(-5,-4)# is a solution for #9x-4y=-6#. If the two sides are not equal, then #(-5,-4)# is not a solution. Explanation: #9x-4y=-6# #9(-5)-4(-4)=-6# #-45+16=-6# #-29!=-6# #(-5,-4)# is not a solution of #9x-4y=-6# Answer link Related questions What are different real world problems that are modeled by Linear equations?
