We first follow the instructions to plug -5/6 in for x and 3/5 in for y to get: $\frac{-5/6}{3/5}$. We never can divide by a fraction. Instead, we need to multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction. Because the reciprocal of 3/5 is 5/3, we obtain: $\frac{-5}{6}\times \frac{5}{3} = \frac{-25}{18}$
