How to read a line on a pattern

I'm a beginner to knitting and have picked up a beginners learn to knit kit. There's a line in the pattern that I'm struggling with. It reads Row 25: k6, k2tog, k10, 9 times, k2tog, k6 (112). I'm struggling with the 9 times section. It doesn't add up to 112 stitches and has left me a bit confused. I was wondering if you could share some pearls of wisdom for a new beginner. Thanks in advance.

Yes, this is a bit confusing because the instruction forgot to place parenthesis for the k2tog, k10" It should be like this; Row 25: k6, (k2tog, k10) 9 times, k2tog, k6 (112). and you can see it now that you should get 6, (11x9), 1, 6 = 112 sts after completing this row. Thanks for visiting and sharing your question. Keep up a good work! Ratcha
