Expert Answer:

There are  infinitely many linear equations which are satisfied by the coordinates of the point  (2,- 5).
 
For example, line  passing through the point (2,- 5)  are satisfied by  some of the Linear equations are as follows:
 
 
Let us draw the graph of the  equation .
 
Simplify the equation begin mathsize 12px style 1 minus straight x over straight y equals 7 over 5 end style we get
 
 
Let us find the solutions in ordered pair in the form of table  as follows:
