Number of gears in a mountain bike

How many gears are there in a mountain bike?

3 gears in the front and 7,8 or 9 at the rear wheel

Everyone knows that a mountain bike or mountain bicycle ( MTB) is a bicycle created for off-road cycling.  Keep in mind that mountain bikes are generally ridden on single track trails, fire roads, logging roads, and other unpaved environments.  When it comes to the number of gears, things are a little more complicated.  It is important to know that mountain bikes often have either 21, 24, or 27 speeds, with 3 gears in the front and 7, 8, or 9 gears at the rear wheel.
