b. 1 unit to the left of the y-axis and 5.3 units above the x-axis
Work Step by Step
An ordered pair is in the form (x,y), where x describes the distance between the point and the y-axis and y describes the distance between the point and the x-axis. Therefore, the point (-1,5.3) will lie one negative unit from (or one unit to the left of) the y-axis and 5.3 positive units from (or 5.3 units above) the x-axis.
