How do you write the phrase into algebraic expressions: five dollars less than Yumi's pay?

$p - 5$, where $p$ represents Yumi's pay
To write an algebraic expression, we need to represent Yumi's pay as a variable (I chose $p$).
The question says five dollars less, which means five (dollars) needs to be detracted/subtracted from $p$ (Yumi's pay).
