Expert Answer:

The Gibbs Phase Rule: P + F = C + 2
 
 the maximum number of possible assemblages with C phases (assemblages with a stability field, F=2) 
 
 The maximum number of possible assemblages with C+1 phases (assemblages defining a reaction, F=1) 
- The maximum number of possible assemblages with C+2 phases (The maximum number of phases that can coexist, F=0)
