    Remember what I said earlier about the slope intercept form?

    The general form for the equation of a line is f(x) = Mx + b Where M is the slope, and b is the intercept.

    So take the slope and intercept you're given and plug them in.

    not m. f(x) or y

    f(x) = 2.3x - 4 (after simplifying the addition with a negative)

    is the answer to the math question f(x) = 2.3x - 4 or m1=0 b=-1.7

    find the slope-intercept equation

    So the equation is f(x) = 2.3x - 4
