An ordered pair (x,y) is a pair of x, y values enclosed in parentheses. The first value is the x-value, and the second is the y-value.

In the given case, (x,y)=(2,-3), thus

x=2, y=-3.

Substitute these x, y values into the inequality and see if the inequality holds. If the inequality holds, the given ordered pair is a solution to the given inequality.
