    Mmm ok so your slope looks good. So what coordinate pair are we using to find our y-intercept?\[\Large f(3)\quad=\quad 13e^{27}-18\]Mmm ok ok I see you have the written down already :3 \[\Large y_{\tan}\quad=\quad mx+b\]So if we plug in our coordinate pair, we get something like this, yes?\[\Large 13e^{27}-18\quad=\quad (234e^{27}-6)\cdot 3+b\]

    From there we can drop the brackets since nothing in being applied to them, \[\large\bf y=\\ \large\bf(234e^{27}-6)x -702e^{27}+18+13e^{27}-18\]It looks like the 18's will cancel out,\[\large\bf y=\\ \large\bf(234e^{27}-6)x -702e^{27}+\cancel{18}+13e^{27}-\cancel{18}\]

    And the exponential terms ( not the one attached to the x ) are like terms, so we'll combine them,\[\large\bf y=\\ \large\bf(234e^{27}-6)x \color{orangered}{-702e^{27}+13e^{27}}\] \[\large\bf y=(234e^{27}-6)x \color{orangered}{-689e^{27}}\]And I think that's our final answer, assuming I didn't make any boo boos along the way.
