    A. To make it balanced he should have subtract 3 from both sides instead of subtracting 9 on the right side. a should equal 6.

    A. The student failed to keep both sides of the equation balanced. B. The student’s final answer does not have the variable a isolated. C. The use of the addition property of equality is sound, and the answer is correct. D. The student should have added 3 to the left side of the equation rather than subtracting.
