7th edition 1D.23

How many ORBITALS can have the following quantum numbers in an atom? Can someone just explain (a) so I can comprehend the rest?
(a)n=2, l=1

You can use the following formula to find the number of orbitals: ml=2l+1. Since l=1, the number or orbitals that can have that quantum number is 3.

You can also do it without the formula. Since we know l=1, we know that it is a p-orbital, and a p-orbital always has 3 orbitals.
