3. a student was solving the following equation:
-96 = -6(x - 15)

-6/-6 = -6x/-6x
1 = x

a. first add 6 to both sides
b. first subtract x from both sides

2. #1 ok
#2 Nope. Try (a) since you have to subtract 1/8 from both sides.
#3 d (-6)(-15) = +90
3(c) is exactly what they did wrong. You want to correct the mistake, not repeat it.
