The steric number is the amount of atoms plus the number of long pairs bonded/attached to the central atom used in VSEPR to determine molecular geometry

The steric number is the number of bonds to the central atom plus the number of lone pairs it has. Essentially it's the number of regions of electron density that the central atom has.
