Hyper-V Logical Processors vs Number of VMs

Probably a dumb question but with Hyper-V can I have more VMs than I have logical processors?  I have 16 logical processors and I want to create 18 VMs.

    Yes of course. You can make even 6 VM maschines on one core.

    There should be no issues with running 18 VMs on a total of 16 processor cores. CPU Cores and Performance is not often the bottleneck in the Hypervisor, but total memory in the server.
