### This represents that they spent \$6 more than the amount they actually earned.

Step-by-step explanation:

The amount spent on soap = \$12

The spent on sponges and rags = \$19

So, the total amount spent by cheerleader

= Amount spent on (Soap + Buckets/ Sponges)  = \$12 + \$19 = \$31

So, they total spent  is \$31 before car washing.

Now, the amount they earned from car washing  = \$25

Here, as we can say:

\$31  > \$25

⇒ The amount spent  is more than  the amount earned.

So, there is loss in the given activity.

Loss = Amount spent – Amount earned

= \$31 – \$25 = \$6

So, the integer expression \$6 shows their loss.

This represents that they spent \$6 more than the amount they actually earned.
