Usage notesEdit

  • For quantity, it is used with uncountable nouns only. The form used with countable nouns is how many.
  • For cost/price, it can be used for both singular and plural, countable or uncountable. E.g. “How much do they cost?” and “What are the prices?” are implied by asking only “How much?”.
