Each brigade usually has between 4 and 6 firing batteries. Which would roughly give:
25 S-300 batteries
25 HQ-22 batteries
30 HQ-12 batteries
40 HQ-9 batteries

What's impressive is the speed of HQ-22 proliferation/procurement. Just some 3 years ago we had just heard about that system entering Chinese service. And by 2022 it may rival HQ-12 in numbers. HQ-12 doesn't seem to be rising in numbers, so HQ-22 production may have superseded it completely.
HQ-9 procurement is fairly slow, but then again, a lot of HQ-9 missiles are going to the navy.

I don't believe the number look at India border only 1 SAM brigade? that is impossible I think by now they should have a range of SAM brigades toward India
There will be another brigade there in the near future, due to the largest amount of facilities built there lately.

Between October and November 2020, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) published a series of news reports about the 80th Air Defense Brigade of the PLA Army (PLAA), news reports that featured improvements to the unit’s technology and modes of operation. Three of those improvements are of particular significance because they likely indicate major improvements to the air defense capability of the PLAA as a whole, improvements making the
PLAA’s air defense units more effective, resilient, and more capable of joint operations
