**Problem Statement:**Please help me understand the variables for the equation, 5 log(R) = -m + k.

**Relevant Equations:**5 log(R) = -m + k

Here is the link to where I found the equation. I know it's on wikipedia but I checked the Hubble's paper and it seems to be credible. I'm trying to make theoretical graphs by testing different inputs for the equation. Would it be dumb to get rid of the "k" in the equation? Sorry I'm in highschool so I'm still learning the ropes of how to make an analysis paper. Also I'm a new member so sorry if I posted on the wrong page!
