    For example,\[\rm 3x = 18 \implies x\mapsto6\]Will that be the correct notation?

    Also check this one:\[\rm x^2 = 9\implies x\mapsto(3,-3)\]

    \[f:x \rightarrow3x\] is that cornened with functions

    The first is OK because it defines x as a constant function.

    The second defines x as a constant function yielding (3,-3) which doesn't make much sense here... perhaps you mean: \[x=\pm3\text{ or }x\in\{3,-3\}\]

    x is mapped to 3x -18

    mapped is in relation to functions.

    Yes, okay, but how can you say that \(\rm x\) maps to 3 or -3?

    @ParthKohli a map is a relation between sets; \[x\mapsto3\text{ is essentially the same as }F(x)=3\]

    As I said, I need to use the mapping symbol for showing the solution of an equation.

    That makes virtually no sense. Do you know what the symbol means?

    If you knew what a map was you wouldn't ask a question like that; no, you can't because that's not what it's for. That's like asking "can I use a telescope to write?"

    use \mapsto to show the related sets , the independent variable (x) and the dependent variable f
