Does the graph of the straight line with slope of 5 and yintercept of -1 pass through the point (1,-2)?

We have the equation $$y = 5x - 1$$ where the slope is 5 and the intercept is -1. Now lets plug in $$y = -2$$ So $$\begin{eqnarray*} -2 &=& 5x - 1 \\ x &=& -\frac{1}{5} \end{eqnarray*}$$ So the answer is no.
