That just means work 6 stitches in your rib pattern, then do the next 2sts together in whatever stitch comes nets. So if you're at the beginning of the row - k2 p2, k2, p2tog, then k2 after that.

If you rib pattern is k1p1 you can k2tog or p2tog. Yes, rib 9 means to work the in rib pattern for 9sts then do whatever the next instruction is.
