About "extra bond per atom"

Dear lammps users,

I am confused about setting the number of "extra bond per atom" in the data file.

For example, initially we have 3 separated atoms 1 2 3, and we use fix bond/create to create bonds between them, 1-2, 2-3, 3-1.
That is, the three atoms form a ring after creating bonds.

So, in the datafile, should we figure:
1 extra bond per atom
2 extra bond per atom?

Each atom needs two new bonds. Therefore, "2 extra bond per atom" is correct.
