How many wheel bearings are in the 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette?

I take it the reason the bearings were changed is because of the shaking or were they making noise?

So can you feel the shake in the steering wheel or only the seat of your pants? The reason I ask is to help isolate where the shaking is coming from,, front or rear of the vehicle.

If you feel it in the steering wheel then it's in the front, seat of pants, rear.

The shake could be caused by many things. I'll assume it's the front. Possible causes;

Wheels out of balance.
Uneven torque on lug nuts.
Bent wheel.
Shifted belt in tire.
Warped brake rotors.
Rotor installed and the raised rust spot(s) on the rotor to hub interface isn't aligned with the hole(s) in the hub.
Rust on rotor braking surface.

These are the ones I have seen over the years and I'm sure there's more.

Vibration in transmission

I do not know if this vehicle has a torque converter lockup or not, but sounds like it. Does the transmission stop shaking when you go over 65? Some vehicles have a torque converter lockup, which means when the vehicle is traveling at a certain speed in high gear the torque converter "locks" and there is no slippage to the transmission resulting in better fuel economy. if the torque converter doesn't "unlock" when you slow down to say 45 then the engine will "lug" causing vibration. If this is the case you are not hurting anything by driving, just shift to 3 when it shakes then upshift under lighter load, or take it to a shop that replaces transmission sensors.

My 2002 Toyota Avalon is shaking when I apply the brakes. I have replaced the front and rear brake pads and the front rotors with Raybestos ones. It still shakes. Could the rear rotors be warped?

That's what I would imagine. It is usually the front rotors that warp due to the fact that they work a little harder than the rears. However, rear rotors can warp. If you feel the shake more in the body of the car, so in the seat and you feel like the whole car is moving and the steering wheel stays mostly calm then I would imagine the rear rotors are warped. However if the shaking is felt mostly in the brake pedal and the steering wheel shakes too then it is probably your front rotors. Shops can usually resurface rotors and it may be cheaper than buying new, so that could be an option for you.
