Best Answer

The relationship between a planet and how many moons it has is the mass of the planet. The larger the mass, the more gravitational pull the planet will have. These I believe are the most current numbers for moons in our solar system: Mercury - 0

Venus - 0

Earth - 1

Mars - 2

Jupiter - 62

Saturn - 61

Uranus - 27

Neptune - 13 Now, technically, Pluto is not considered a "planet" anymore. However, it is considered a "dwarf planet". So, if you would like to include Pluto: Pluto - 1
