I was doing homework problem 9C.9 where I'm supposed to find the coordination number. But, I didn't know what en or edta stood for in the compounds. Like one was [PtCl2(en)2] and the other [Cr(edta)]. What molecules are en and edta ?

en is ethylenediamene and edta is ethylenediamenetetraacetic acid. You can find these in the table in the textbook also

These can be found in the handout Dr. Lavelle shared with us through email a few days ago.
