It sounds like you're trying to use the `abline`

function from base graphics. In that function `a`

is the intercept and `b`

is the slope of the line that will be drawn (see the help for `abline`

by typing `?abline`

in the console).

Are you saying you want to figure out what the values of the intercept and slope should be for your particular situation? If so, we'll need some additional information about your problem. Can you provide a reproducible example? That just means code and data that we can work with to reproduce your problem and provide tailored solutions.

Here's an example using the built-in `mtcars`

data set:

```
plot(mtcars$hp, mtcars$mpg)
# Model predicting mpg from hp
m = lm(mpg ~ hp, data=mtcars)
# Add regression line to plot using intercept and slope coefficients
# from the model we just created
abline(a=coef(m)[1], b=coef(m)[2])
```
