Question about equations solutions?

This is probably a dumb question but can anyone help.

a = Solve[y^2+5*y*x+6*x^2==0,y]  gives an answer of  {{y->-3 x},{y->-2
x}}

and

Print[a] then displays {{y->-3 x},{y->-2 x}}

How do get Print or some later input to reference the actual solutions
"2x" or "3x" instead of {{y->-3 x},{y->-2 x}}

Thanks Ian
