Evaluating two cells with VBA command button

Folks,
Here's what I am trying to do. Users have to choose between two possible answers - Answer A or Answer B based upon the results of their formulas and interpretation of the results. Answer A and Answer B are command buttons.

I am using the command buttons to test the results of two cells B9 and D9. For example if D9 = $7,500 and B9 = $5,000 then B9 is < D9 and the user should select Answer A. I need a message box that states, "Correct because the cash outlay is $2,500 less!"
However, if that was not true and the user selected Answer A then the message box would state "Incorrect because the cash outlay is $2,500 more!"
My code below for Answer A just is not getting me there.

Private Sub cmdInvestmentA_Click()
If B9 < D9 Then
MsgBox "Correct because the total cash outlay is " & B9 - D9 & " less!"
Else
MsgBox "Incorrect because the total cash out is " & D9 - B9 & " more!"
End If
End Sub
