Vamos ver a diferença em How much e how many de forma simples e faremos exercícios how much ou how many após a explicação.

Quando utilizar How much?

How much equivale ao “quanto/quanta” do português, como quando perguntamos “quanto custa esta camisa?”.

How much é usado somente com nomes incontáveis, como dinheiro (dinheiro não é contável, as cédulas e moedas sim! 🙂 ). Eu  posso perguntar preços desta forma:

How much does the book cost?

How much do the blankets cost?

How much is this?

Mas how much não serve só para saber preços! Veja as perguntas abaixo:

How much water do you want?

How much beef do your children eat in a meal?

How much furniture is there in this apartment?

Quando usar o How Many?

How many é usado com nomes contáveis, e corresponde ao nosso “quantos/quantas”. Veja as perguntas abaixo:

How many dollars do you have?

How many  reais can you pay?

How many weeks of vacations will you take?
