Isn't it juse easier to search how many cores your cpu has?
Code:
grep cores /proc/cpuinfo| head -n1
cpu cores    : 8

I have....
inxi -c

Yup, there's another one. There's also lscpu | grep "per socket" which should give an accurate result.

There's a ton of ways to get this data. The article contains only a few.

Y'all can free to add it to the article as a comment. ;-)

I'm now kinda curious as to how many possible ways you can get this information - probably excluding any GUI ways... If we include graphical applications, it's a bunch.

By the way, the article invites you to leave your method as a comment. ;-)
I just replied with a comment but my code tags don't work, and when I login to the backend it won't allow me to edit my comment.

Hmm... I don't think you have the rights to edit comments. Code tags are <code></code> over there. I'll take a peek at it in a moment. I'm just now really getting here for the day.

You now have 15 minutes to edit comments after submitting them. It's a fairly obvious feature, appearing after you submit your comment.
