create a standard form of: $Ax+By=C$ with slope $\left(-\frac{A}{B}\right)$
$\text{XXXXXX}5y+6x-2=0$
$\text{XXXXXX}6x+5y=2$
$\text{XXX}$ Slope $=-\frac{6}{5}$
Or another method: convert into slope-intercept form $y=mx+b$ with slope $m$
$\text{XXX}5y+6x-2=0$
$\text{XXXXXX}5y=-6x+2$
$\text{XXXXXX}y=-\frac{6}{5}x+\frac{2}{5}$
$\text{XXX}$ Slope $=-\frac{6}{5}$
