Dear Student

The coordination number is simply the number of nearest neighbours of an atom/ion. Look at or draw a cube, you will see it has 6 faces or sides. If the neighbours are arranged like a cube around the central atom/ion, there are 6 nearest neighbours just as there are 6 faces: 4 around the body of the cube, 1 above and 1 below.

All the best.
