in the Analysis tools, the numbers of points mean the number of automatically distributed frequencies and in the default value, it is written 21. can you please tell me what it refers here? any formula that describes it?

Per our documentation:

Frequency scale

Specifies whether the sweep frequencies should be distributed on a 
linear or logarithmic scale.

Number of points

The number of automatically distributed frequencies.

You can change the number to be something different from 21 and whether you want the points to be spaced linearly in between your minimum and maximum frequency or using a logarithmic distribution.

Thank you,
