Need help: "Write the following equation in following form: y=mx+b" 5x+6y=-30 How to proceed this? Thank you

The equation of the line 5x + 6y = -30 has to be written in the slope-intercept form y = mx + b.
5x + 6y = -30
Isolate 6y to one side
=> 6y = -5x - 30
Divide both sides by 6
=> `y = (-5/6)*x - 5`
The required form of the equation is `y = (-5/6)*x - 5`
ok thank you!
I had (30/-6) in mind and the website where I am supposed to type my input wasnt happy with that.
This website is GREAT!
