Answer:y = 17x – 55

Step-by-step explanation:The equation of a line in slope- intercept form is

y = mx + c ( m is the slope and c the y- intercept )

Here m = 17, thus

y = 17x + c ← is the partial equation

To find c substitute (3, – 4) into the partial equation

– 4 = 51 + c ⇒ c = – 4 – 51 = – 55

y = 17x – 55 ← equation of line
