two per side to support. not one each like a lot of people do
To safely lift ALL 4 wheels off the ground you would need 4 jacks (remember, these come in a pair so you would need x2 orders). Each jack should be located at each of the 4 corners of your vehicle, usually just inside each wheel and on the frame where it sets safely. I would review your owners manual for the vehicle you are trying to lift to ensure you do it safely. Short answer, order two of these and you will get the 4 jack stands you need to completely hold all 4 wheels off the ground.

depending on what you want to do, if you want to do a brake job you would jack up one side and place the jack stand next to where you attached the jack. you would then lower it on to the jack stand. you would do oneside at a time, or you could puy just the front end up in the air placing 1 jack stand at the front drivers side, and the 2nd jack stand at the passengers front side

you need 4 to lift the whole car but 2 are usually enough for lifting either the front or rear of car. Only one is needed if only working on one wheel at a time. A safe way is to always have two supports in place when under a car. Jack it up, place a stand under the part to be worked on and...lower jack slowly to place most of weight on the stand. Leave your jack in place as a saftey in case the stand slips. As a rule of thumb more support is better.

Read your maintenance manual. Ever car can be different.
Most will go on the wheel axle or frame.
You can warp/break parts of your car if they are placed in an incorrect spot.

2 for juxtaposed lift, assuming 2 tires remain on the ground

you only need 2 lifts, but you have to put them on the same side. it'll make rotating tires easy, but just to change the oil you can just put them on the front two
