|Number of halos in the Milkey Way Galexy|

Number of halos in the Milkey Way Galexy
One day I was bored so I began to think about the number of halos in the Milky was Galaxy. Since the ring destroyed by the Master Chief Spartan John-117 is called "Halo-04". It would imply that there are at least 4 Halo Rings in existence.
Also, the forerunners built the haloes to wipe out all "life with sufficient biomass to sustain the flood"(not sure if it is a real quote). That would mean that the Forerunners built enough halos to destroy most if not all the area of the Milky Way Galaxy. As stated by 343 guilty sparks in TB (level 8 beginning cutscene):
That would imply that the ring can fire at a radius of 25,000 light year, which when converted into an area is 1,963,495,408 light years. Then I decided to find the radius of the Milky Way, which believed is 50,000 light years. I converted it into an area, which is 7,853,981,634 light years. Then I divided 7,853,981,634 (area of the Milky Way galaxy) by 1,963,495,408(area of the blast radius of 1 halo) and it gave me 4.0000000010185916360442030633972. That would mean that there would need to be at least 4 halos to destroy life on most of the galaxy (supported by what I said before: "Since the ring destroyed by the Master Chief Spartan John-117 is called "Halo-04". It would imply that there are at least 4 Halo Rings in existence. ").
But I think that the Forerunners would not do anything half way so they might install another halo, make the total 5.
I also looked at the possibility of having overlapping the halos firing range, meaning that each halo is about 37500 light years away from each other. That would lead to an effective area of 490873852.1 light years. When that from the total area of the Milky Way Galaxy (7,853,981,634 light years) it gives 16.000000000814873308669357823389, or 17(I rounded up).
From all this I have concluded that there are at least 4 to 17 halos in the Milky Way galaxy. There are probably more
