#### Explanation:

If (3 ,2) is a solution then it must 'satisfy' the equation. That is make it True.

To determine this, substitute x = 3 and y = 2 into the left side of the equation and if the result is 12 then it is a solution.

#rArr(2xx3)+(3xx2)=6+6=12#

#"LHS = RHS hence (3,2) is a solution"#
