The next class of rules are the pacittiyas. As already mentioned above, they can be cleared by simply confessing to another fully-ordained monastic. A small number of pacittiyas also require that something be done to an object before the confession is valid, such as breaking a valuable needle case, or cutting down a robe that is too long, etc.
In the Pali tradition, there are 188 pacittiyas in total. (In other schools, the number varies, especially for the bhikkhuni rules.) There are 70 rules that are shared between bhikkhus and bhikkhunis, 22 rules for bhikkhus only, and 96 rules for bhikkhunis only.
Here’s an overview of the shared rules. (As usual, Ajahn Thanissaro’s translation; the numbers refer to bhikkhunis first, bhikkhu’s in square brackets.)
