A student at Harvard named Kevin
Was counting his stones by 11
He messed up n times
And instead counted 9s
And wound up at 2007.

To be precise, Kevin divides 2007 stones into groups of  11 stones and 9 stones, where n of the groups have 9 stones in them. How many values of n could make this limerick true?
