How many types of arthritis are there, and what are they called?

I'm doing a school project where we are given a "patient" (not real) and they are already diagnosed. Mine is an 86 year-old woman with arthritis. I have done lots of research and have found that there are different types of arthritis and was wondering how many there are and what they are called.
