Doubting whether one made one or two sajdahs in salaah

Q: If one is unsure if one prostrated once or twice in a unit but learns that it was twice, does one have to do sajda sahw at the end of the prayer?

If one does not do Sajdah Sahw is the prayer valid?

A: If the dominant portion of one's mind is that one had made two sajdahs, then one does not have to make sajdah sahw at the end of the salaah.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
