Finding the amount of agriculture within 5km of point

GOAL: I want to find out how much land is agricultural/forest/urban/water/sand within 5km of a point. 

WORKFLOW: (SEE IMAGE ATTACHED)

  1. Download a satellite image from landsat8
  2. use image classification, maximum likelihood classification 
  3. Now that I have classified what in the image is water, sand, forest, urban, and forest I created a point by creating a shape file and starting an edit session, during which I created the point. 
  4. create a 5km buffer from the point i created, using the buffer tool
  5. I'M NOT SURE WHAT TO DO FROM HERE ON OUT. 
  6. I tried using the intersect tool but the only input features are the point and buffer features, not MLCLASS_All_6 (which is what contains the data on agricultural/forest/urban/water/sand)
  7. I tried "extract by circle" to isolate the 5km area around the point but I don't know the X,Y coordinate of the point. 
  8. I also tried entering another editing session in "MLClass_All_6" and creating a cricle that way but that didn't work either. 

 

Any recommendations?
