The solution set is $\left\{18\right\}$.

Work Step by Step

Solve using the different properties of Algebra to find: $-6x=-83-25 \\-6x=-108 \\x=\frac{-108}{-6} \\x=18$ Check: $25-6(18)\stackrel{?}{=}-83 \\25-108\stackrel{?}{=}-83 \\-83 \stackrel{\checkmark}{=}-83$ The solution set is $\left\{18\right\}$.
