### This Is a Certified Answer

Certified answers contain reliable, trustworthy information vouched for by a hand-picked team of experts. Brainly has millions of high quality answers, all of them carefully moderated by our most trusted community members, but certified answers are the finest of the finest.
1. 4x – 5y = 9
⇒4x = 5y +9
⇒4x -9 = 5y
⇒(4x -9)/5 = 5y/5
⇒y = (4x-9)/5
⇒y = (4/5)x - 9/5

2. To check whether they are solution or not, put the values in the equation and see if it satisfies the equation or not.
Equation is 4x – 5y = 24 or 4x – 5y - 24 = 0

A. 4(-9) – 5(-12) - 24 = -36 +60 -24 = 0   <<<<<<<<solution
B.
4(1) – 5(-4) - 24 = 4+20-24 = 0   <<<<<<<<<<<<solution
C. 4(4) – 5(8) - 24 = 16 -40-24 =-48  <<<<<<<<<<<not a soluton
D. 4(6) – 5(0) - 24 = 24 -0-24 = 0<<<<<<<<<<<<<< solution.

1.
4x-5y=9

⇒-5y =9-4x

applying - on both sides

⇒-(-5y)=-(9-4x)

⇒5y= -9+4x

⇒y=4x-9÷5

⇒y=4x/5-9/5(A)

2.4x -5y=24

A.4(-9)-5(-12)=24⇒-36-(-60)⇒-36+60⇒24 A-SATISFIED

B.4(1)-5(-4)⇒4-(-20)⇒4+24⇒24 B-SATISFIED

C.4(4)-5(8)⇒24-40⇒-14 C-NOT SATISFIED

D.4(6)-5(0)⇒24-0⇒24 D.SATISFIED

SO A,B AND D ARE SOLUTIONS FOR THIS EQUATION.
