Please help I am so confused...

Question:

supposed that y is directly proportional to x.

a) use the given info to find constant of proportionally k.

b) then use y=kx to find y for x=6

y= -62 when x=5

Please help.. thank you

this is all I have so far. not sure if I am correct.

y=kx

-62= k*(5)

but then how do I solve for k?
