7 sub-orbitals to hold 14 electrons

#### Explanation:

The "f" orbitals hold 14 electrons. Each sub-orbital can hold two electrons. In order to house 14 total electrons the $f$ orbital would need $7$ sub-orbitals.

f-orbital is one orbital ...
its has 7 different orientations
n each orientation can hold 2 electrons...making a total of 14 electrons!!

hope it helps!
