So, this question is a tad bit confusing.  Is there more to the problem?
 
If not, and your equation is:
 
c(r)=3pr
 
Then there really is nothing you have to do to write it in slope-intercept form (y=mx+b).
 
Slope-intercept form:
 
y=mx+b, where m=slope, b=y-intercept (where the line crosses the y-axis)
 
For your equation, you can think of c(r) being 'y' and r is 'x'.  If 'p' is just a number, then I'd say,
 
m=3p and b=0
 
So, essential it already is in slope-intercept form, or you can re-write it with y and x
 
y=3px
 
But I am wondering if there is some information missing from this problem....
