    True, if x=1 and y=1

    Step-by-step explanation:

    3x + 2y = 5xy

    The equation can be true or false depending upon the value of variables x and y.

    Suppose the values of variable in this equation is as follows

    x = 1, and

    y = 1

    Now, putting the values of x and y in the above equation,

    3 * 1 + 2 * 1 = 5 * 1 * 1

    After solving we get

    5=5

    Left hand side term is equal to the right hand side term, so the equation

    3x + 2y = 5xy is true for the values of x and y each equal to 1.
