$y = x - 6$

#### Explanation:

The slope intercept form of the equation of a line is:

$y = m x + b$

where m is the slope and b is the value of y when x is 0.

We are given that the slope is 1 and the given point shows us that y is -6 when x is 0. Therefore, the equation of the line is:

$y = x - 6$
