9 is one less than 10.

9

7 less than 9 is two. It is always two, unless you are asking some sort of trick question. This is an arithmetic question, not an algebra one. The problem 9 - 7 = 2 is true across all branches of mathematics, and though it might be encountered in just about any place, it has its basis in arithmetic.

If you want to say "Nine is less than a number k," you would write 9<K. If you're asking for an equation, e.g. "Nine less than a number k is equal to that number divided by three," you would write k - 9.

One less than the product of 8 and 9
