How many possible options did the results give?

I tried it yesterday to establish where I might fit in relation to my closest unknown DNA match, there are also several shared matches in her family I can add to the WATO tree and include cM values for. Initially I started with two individuals with cM values and let the programme to get the results. I added another individual with a cM value and tried again. I repeated the process several times adding another individual with a cM value from our shared matches. I ended up with between 45 and 70 potential spots I could fit in the tree, the last test was the 70 options but put me two generations away from the most likely relationship calculations Ancestry suggest as viable.

On paper I have no link whatsoever to these people and even more confused than ever beyond they are a maternal link and seem to be through my grandfather.
