 Coordination number is the number of atoms that are bound to the central metal atom. All molecules that are bound to the central metal atom are denoted in square brackets, so just count them and take into account that some of them bind with several atoms
Gly-4
H20 – 2
nh3 – 2
 
There fore the cooordination number of the complex is 8.
