You haven’t even begun to give the depth of detail necessary to fully answer your question. I’m assuming this is an assignment given in a specific course or something similar. In that case, you’re probably supposed to use some kind of given process in order to determine “desktop and server computing” (a phrase which does not mean what you think it means, by the way).
Though an exacting answer would need a lot more information, such as what the firm’s business is, what demands the firm has to uptime, and so on, a simple answer for a pretty good system would be:
* 12 desktop computers (one per employee), 2 in backup (kept updated with the standard image, or at least simple to replace).
* 2 servers onsite, where one serves as the main server and the other one is a hot backup.
* One server kept in the cloud or at least offsite, for emergencies and off-site backup.
It’s pretty simple to explain this – always have at least one computer per employee that works with computers, always plan for at least 20% fail rate, and have one onsite and one offsite contingency plan in case of problems.
