Similar to this question: How to translate the results from lm() to an equation? in which the top voted answer said how to get the form of an equation from
lm(y ~ x) and equivalently for
lm(z ~ y + x) and other sums, I'm wondering: how can the equation be obtained from the form of
lm(z ~ y*x)?

It returns 4 coefficients --
x:y -- but I'm not sure how to put them together to get the final equation.
Is it simply that
x:y term multiplied by
x*y plus the intercept? That is, in this case $\log z = 91.69 xy -9.853$?
