Let's pull it apart...

The quotient of the opposite of 30 and 6

The opposite of 30 is -30 and the quotient of -30 and 6 means -30 divided by 6 or

 -30/6 = -5

Now the other part...

Plus the opposite of 8.  The opposite of 8 is -8, so plus -8 just means minus 8 or -8.  So we have the first part added to the second part...

-5 + (-8)  which can also be written -5 - 8

-5 - 8 = -13
