$(-5, 2)$
RECALL: The point $(x, y)$ has: $x$= directed distance of the point from the y-axis (positive when to the right of the y-axis, negative when to the left) $y$= directed distance of the point from the x-axis (positive when above the x-axis, negative when below) Point C is: 5 units to the left of the y-axis so $x=-5$ 2 units above the x-axis so $y=2$ Thus, the coordinates of $C$ are $(-5, 2)$.
