    Answer:

    number = 8

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let “number” = x. Set the equation.

    “product of 2 and number” = 2(x)

    “nine less” = -9

    “equal to 7” = “= 7”

    2x – 9 = 7

    Isolate the variable, x. Note the equal sign, what you do to one side, you do to the other. Add 9 to both sides.

    2x – 9 (+9) = 7 (+9)

    2x = 7 (+9)

    2x = 16

    Divide 2 from both sides.

    (2x)/2 = (16)/2

    x = 16/2

    x = 8

    8 is your answer.
