    The integer expression $6 shows their loss.

    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.
