#### Explanation:

#"check the coordinates of each point on the given equation"#

#"by substituting in x-coordinate to obtain y"#

#(0,-7)toy=0-7=-7larr"correct"#

#(1,-3)toy=4-7=-3larr" correct"#

#(2,1)toy=8-7=1larr"correct"#

#(3,5)toy=12-7=5larr"correct"#

#(4,9)toy=16-7=9larr"correct"#

#"all points satisfy the equation "y=4x-7#

Seeing the solution graphically:

#### Explanation:

Expanding on this answer, here it is graphically:

graph{(y-4x+7)((x-0)^2+(y+7)^2-.1)((x-1)^2+(y+3)^2-.1)((x-2)^2+(y-1)^2-.1)((x-3)^2+(y-5)^2-.1)((x-4)^2+(y-9)^2-.1)=0[-10,10,-5,5]}

scroll around on the graph to see all the points listed on the line.
