What does the 22nd amendment have to do with US presidential limits?

I know that there is an amendment that limits a president from serving more than two terms but do not know which one it is.

The 22nd amendment specifically states no one can be elected to more than 2 terms as President, and cannot run more than once if serving more than 2 years of the prior President's term (such as a Vice-President). This means that no one serves in the Executive office more than 8 years.

The 22nd Amendment says that a person can serve only two terms as President, even if the terms are not served back to back. If a person takes over the President as a result of a previous President's resignation, their time served as President isn't included in the two-term limit.

The 22nd Amendment to the US Constitution limits the President to two four year terms. This was the traditional limit until FDR ran and was elected four times.

The 22nd amendment states no president may be elected for three or more terms except Harry Truman and no person may be president for more than 10 years.
