How do i retrieve value of the <Number> element when id is a given value

<Add>
      <id>T1</id>
      <MC>
            <Type>A</Type>
            <Number>44444</Number>
      </MC>
</Add>
                  
I'm trying to do something like
<xsl:value-of select="/root/RQ/Other/Add[MC[Type='A' or Type='V']]/id = $id/ Number "/>

but this is failing. i know i'm missing a bracket somewhere. can someone please assist?

or make a key
<xsl:key name="add" match="Add" use="id"/>
at the start of your XSLT

and use <xsl:value-of select="key('add', $id)/MC[Type='A' or Type='V']/Number"/>

anywhere in the XSLT (where you have access to $id of course)
