    Sorry. Thanks!

    But can you explain to me why 9?
    I need a clarified explanation for me to answer a friend of mine's question. I know it's 9 but it's very hard to explain to others by my knowledge alone.

    Not this again... Look at the sticky.

    Do not post something like this again.
