We don't know exactly but here are some ideas:
In the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, is estimated to contain between 200 asteroids with 60 miles in diameter (be suspicious with exact numbers like this nature is not that simple), 1.1 and 1.9 million asteroids larger than 1 kilometer (0.6 mile) in diameter, and millions of smaller ones. The real answer here there are 1-2 million in the solar system, but really who knows...
