    2/x-9

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Write it out just the way you read it, then follow the order of operations.

    The "Order of Operations" (P-E-MD-AS ... or ... B-O-DM-AS) tells us that quotient (division) comes before less (subtraction) so:

    How do you represent "the quotient of two and (a number) X"?

    The quotient of 2 divided by X is (2:X) or (2/X) or 2

    What is nine less than that quotient?

    subtract 9 from your choice of the previous representations, for example:

    2/x-9
