Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Fiona,

Let the point zero on the x-axis represent the starting point. Then point B has an xcoordinate of 46. If the cyclist is moving at 12 meters per second moving to the right on the x-axis, then after 3 seconds, the cyclist has moved 3 * 12 = 36 meters. Therefore, point C has an x-coordinate of 46 + 36 = 82.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
