What levels of compression[1-9] use gzip in the configurations "fast" and "best"?

'gzip --fast' and 'gzip --best'

man gzip:
-# --fast --best
Regulate the speed of compression using the specified digit #,
where -1 or --fast indicates the fastest compression method
(less compression) and -9 or --best indicates the slowest com-
pression method (best compression). The default compression
level is -6 (that is, biased towards high compression at expense
of speed).
