GRAMMAR – How Much vs. How Many

When we want to know the quantity or amount of something, we use HOW MUCH or HOW MANY.

  • We use HOW MANY when asking about countable nouns.
    How many animals are there?
    How many cars can you see?
    How many slices of pizza did they order?
  • We use HOW MUCH when asking about uncountable nouns.
    How much cheese is there?
    How much water should we drink every day?
    How much coffee is in the pot?

If you have any questions or doubts, please ask in the comments or send me a private message.
