Perform step 1 on the equation. x^2+5X-6=0 and x^2+5x-6=0. How would i do this type of problem. I am so lost right now. I need some help

I don't know what the steps are. Perhaps the first step is to identify the a, b, and c that fit into the quadratic formula.
a = 1, the coefficient of the squared term.
b = 5, the coefficient of the x term.
c = -6, the number.
