Use Map to map Solve to each of the xy coordinate pairs. This is
done as follows:
In[2]:= ({x, y, z} /.
Solve[{x == First@#, y == Last@#, 6*x + 4*y + z == 1}, {x, y,
z}]) & /@ list
Out[2]= {{{1, 2, -13}}, {{3, 1, -21}}, {{5, 4, -45}},
{{6, 3, -47}}, {{2, 5, -31}}}
Here, I set up a pure function with Solve (the {x, y,
z}/.Solve[{x == First@#, y == Last@#, 6*x + 4*y + z == 1}, {x,
y, z}])& part) and mapped it to the elements of list (the /@
part). If you are unfamiliar with this technique you should read
the documentation on pure functions and Map
