The first thing you need to do is remember what slope intercept form is. 
 
y=mx+b
 
m= slope
b= y-intercept
 
You are given that the slope is -1. We can plug that into the equation giving us:
 
y= -1x+b
 
We are also given a point that our line goes through. (-6, -3). Now this is a x value and a y value. (x, Y).
 
We can use this point to help us find b.
 
-3= -1(-6)+b
 
Now we can solve for b.
 
-3= 6+b
 
Subtract six from both sides to get b by itself giving us:
 
-9= b
 
Now we can plug our value of b into our equation:
 
y= -x-9
 
This is your slope intercept form equation.
 
Hope this helps!
