It is hard to know the number of dwarf planets
on our galaxy, but I can tell you that in our
solar system, there are five (5) recognized dwarf
information here . These planets' names are
Ceres, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris.
On the other hand, Wikipedia mentions:
"estimates are that up to 200 dwarf planets
will be identified when the entire region known as
the Kuiper belt is explored, and that the
number may exceed 10,000 when objects
scattered outside the Kuiper belt are considered.
