Two ways:
(1) Plot y = 3x  5 and check if it passes through the point (4,7).
(2) Substitute the xcoordinate of the point given (which is 4) to the equation, and solve for y. If the resulting y is equal to 7, it is a solution to the equation.
Let's do #2 to check:
y = 3x  5
y = 3*4  5
y = 12  5
y = 7
therefore, it is indeed a solution to the equation.
