Not sure what you're asking. Other than avoiding placing one right over a rafter, I'm not sure there are any rules. Space them evenly for cosmetics.

Are you asking how many for the balanced venting system? Figure what you need in total vents, divide by 1/2 intake at soffits, 1/2 exhaust at ridge, compute each static vent, as per manufacturer, to find number required. Distribute them evenly.

If any ads are present below my answer or words underlined/colored, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed/linked to, they are there without my consent.
17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?
