    You can set it up as an equation of a line and figure out, there are many methods. One easy way is, to find the x - intercept set y = 0 and solve for x, and then to find the y - intercept, set x = 0, and solve for y.

    Well you set x = 0 right, so you have 0-6y=30, now solve for y.

    Yup :), so your x intercept is (0,6) and y is (0,-5)
