$(3., -5)$

Work Step by Step

RECALL: In the point $(a, b)$, $a$=directed distance of the point from the y-axis (positive when to the right of the y-axis) and $b$=directed distance from the x-axis (positive when above the x-axis). The point is: 3 units to the right of the y-axis means $x=3$ 5 units below the x-axis means $y=-5$. Thus, the coordinates of the point are $(3, -5)$.
