Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

So because we are being asked to solve for various values of y when x is equal to something, we need to rearrange the equation:

-5y = 9-3x

y = -(9-3x)/5

So, plug in those three values!

For x=-1, y = -(9-3*-1)/5 = -(9--3)/5 = -12/5

For x=0, y = -(9-3(0))/5 = -9/5

For x=1, y = -(9-3(1))/5 = -6/5

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
