    The equation of a line is \[y = mx + b\] y is the output, m is the slope of the line, x is the input, and b is the y - intercept. Is that what you are looking for?

    Okay they've given you the slope and y intercept. Just plug those back into the above equation. \[y = mx + b\] \[(output) = (slope)(input) + (intercept)\] \[y = 3x - 2\]
