Default 12 blade vs 6 blade EDF, Thrust, Efflux

I'm a total newbie with jets...

What factors are considered in choosing the number of blades in an EDF - is this a Thrust vs Efflux consideration?

Anyone have the math formulas for calculating Thrust, Efflux, Thrust tube dimensions?

I just want an approximate 9.5lb jet to fly easy, I don't really care about speed at this point.

Thanks
