It isn't so much the number of cards but how you manage the credit, as is explained very well in the articles on this site. I went from a primarily cash basis to having a few credit cards with an over $20K credit limit total and my score has gone up. I learned how to manage the credit very well from the information here and this is not taught in any school.  Please take the time to read them.
