For x = - 9

y = 4 x - 9 = 4 * ( - 9 ) - 9 = - 36 - 9 = - 45

For x = 3

y = 4 x - 9 = 4 * 3 - 9 = 12 - 9 = 3

For x = - 6

y = 4 x - 9 = 4 * ( - 6 ) - 9 = - 24 - 9 = - 33

For x = 5

y = 4 x - 9 = 4 * 5 - 9 = 20 - 9 = 11

If youe expression mean :

y = - 4 x -9

then

( 5 , - 28 ) is not a solution becouse:

for x = 5

y = - 4 x -9 = - 4 * 5 - 9 = - 20 - 9 = - 29
