$(3, 0)$
RECALL: In the point $(x ,y)$: $x$ = directed distance of the point from the y-axis (positive when the point is to the right of the y-axis, negative when to the left) $y$ = directed distance of the point from the x-axis (positive when the point is above the x-axis, negative when below) Point C is: 3 units to the right of the y-axis so $x=3$ 0 units above the x-axis so $y=0$ Thus, the coordinates of C are $(3, 0)$.
