    The equation they require you to write is "equation of a line" where it is represented as y = mx+b, where m is the slope and b is the y - intercept.

    So just plug in the values in that equation and you're done :)

    No b is the y - intercept, don't confuse that with "y"

    |dw:1438795566460:dw| so you have \[y = -7x+6\]
