See full solution process below

#### Explanation:

First, let's write in mathematical terms "the product of 6 and a number" where the number is $x$:

"The product" means to multiply or "times" so we can write:

$6 \times x$

Now "two less than" this means to subtract $6$ from this product giving:

$\left(6 \times x\right) - 6$
