The brake that you are adjusting go to that wheel. On that wheel you will see a brake pad on each side of the wheel. To adjust tighter you squeese these two brake pads together, you will see a wire, there will be a nut that they wire goes through, loosen the nut and squeese brake pads together, then tighten nut back up. your hand brake will now be adjusted.

How many ball bearings are there supposed to be on each side of the front axle of the Schwinn Point Beach model S4852WM bike?

There will always be a small gap in the bearing ring, and not all hubs take the same amount. However, if the balls are 3/16" there are almost always 10 on each side. If they are 1/4 inch (less common) then 9 is the correct amount. DO NOT replace only some of them - replace only in a full set of 20 or 18.

Try an adjustable wrench. I think that the nut is 7/16th's or 1/2 (english units).

The hand brake on the schwinn won't bounce back after squeezed. which causes the tires not to roll smoothly. can you help

More than likely the problem is on the brake or the brake cable. Corrostion builds up on the cable and restricts cable movement. The other item could be the springs on the brake itself need adjustment. To lube the cable remove the cable from the housing, use a light grade oil on the cable and lube the inside of the cable housing also TriFlpw is an excellent lubrication.
