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


In general the coordinates of a point on a unit circle are given by 

( cos θ, sin θ) where  θ is the angle at the center from (1, 0) to the point of interest

here  θ = -5 radians (negative because it is clockwise)

so the point is ( cos -5, sin-5 )  = (0.2837, 0.9589)

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