Path difference = n*lambda = d*sin(theta)

where n Is some positive real number, d is the inter-slit distance, theta is the angle is subtended by the fringe at the point lying midway the two slits and lambda is the wavelength of light.

For the very last fringe (bright) on the distant screen, the angle theta = 90 degrees. So the above formula becomes n*lambda = d*sin(90) = d*1 = d

Therefore, n*lambda = d which implies n = d/lambda

However, because the number of fringes has to be a whole number, it becomes necessary to introduce a floor function (aka greatest integer function). That is,

floor(n) = [n] = number of fringes on one half of the screen

Hence, total number of fringes = number of fringes on both halves of the screen plus the lone central maxima at the center of the screen

That is, total number of fringes = 2[n]+ 1 = 2[d/lambda]+1

This is the method of calculating total number of fringes based on the conventional analysis of Young’s Double Slit Experiment

Hope it helps

Thanks and regards

I just got my ex boyfriend back with the help of Dr.Excellent he is a genuine spell caster. Thank you for taking the time to helping people in need. The service you provide is really amazing. My boyfriend Kelvin left me in June 19th, I could barely speak without crying. I felt blindsided and didn't know what to do and I was devastated. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant for him. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my sister and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to give it a trail. I messaged the spell caster called Dr.Excellent, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be ok, and he told me what is needed to be done and i provide the necessary things. He cast the spell and surprisingly 28 hours later my boyfriend called me. It was so surprising, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that has happened He wanted us to come back together. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to Dr.Excellent . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your boyfriend moved to another girl, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Excellent for help now..Here his contact.
