Firstly, I would like to point out a very noticeable mistake in this question.

Nine plus seven equals to 16, not 17.

Maybe, you aren't that good at Maths. Or maybe, you were in a hurry and mistakenly wrote 17.

Okay, you don't really have to be that careful at posting your questions. You know, the other users are there to point out the mistakes in your question.

But be a little careful next time so that no one can point out any mistake in your question.

It should be flawless!

Second thing is that whether we will say "Nine and seven is sixteen", or "Nine and six are seventeen".

We don't use any of them in either colloquial purposes or written purposes.

The correct way of saying it is -

"Nine and seven make sixteen".
