How many packet would be used in TCP IP handshake?

Hello, I would like to know in order to transfer 1 byte of data via TCP how many packed would be used at OSI layer 4? I assume TCP IP handshake would consume 3 packet.

1 for SYNC
2 for SYNC + ACK
3 for ACK + Data.

Am I right in this approach? Thanks!

There are no byets of data passed in the 3-packet handshake. Therefore, you must use two more packets to send the byte and receive its ACK.
A total of five..the three-way handshake, data packet, and ack from the data packet.
