How many orbitals have the values n = 4, l = 3, and m_l = -2?

2. Relevant equations

First of all, is this question asking me how many orbitals there are with the given quantum numbers? Second, how do I go about finding that out

3. The attempt at a solution

I thought that I could figure out the number of orbitals by using 2*l +1 but the answer I get is wrong? Help please :)
