    For nine, you have Kuu and Kyuu.

    Kuu is usually used for the number 9. Kyuu for counting objects.

    For example
    Biiru kyuu hon onegai shimasu

    Which means in direct translation

    Beer 9 bottles, please do me a favour

    Soretomo, which the word for or at the start of a sentance, indirectly translated it comes out as follows

    Please do me the favour of giving me nine bottles of beer

    Now if you wanted to say nine of clock such as in this case, you would use kuu not kyuu.

    itsu tabemasu ka? means when would you like to eat?
    Itsu means when?
    Tabemasu means want to eat.
    Ka makes the sentance a question.

    You might answer that question with:
    kuu ji ni

    ni is a particle for at. ji means O clock and Kuu means nine 9. So the sentance translate to, at nine o clock.
