The coordination number is just the number of bonds attached to the central atom and within the coordination sphere.

It is the number of molecules, ions, or atoms bound to the central atom. The surrounding molecules, ions, or atoms are called ligands.

By knowing the coordination number we can then determine the name of the coordination complex.
