Comparative Estimates –As Many As

Comparative Estimates –As Many As

Assalamu’alaikum Wr Wb
in this post I will discuss about "Comparative Estimates –As Many As". The following descriptions.

Remember that as many as is used before a specific number to express an estimate that does not exceed the number.

as many as
Number

We should have
as many as
five hundred
applications

Avoid using as many instead of as many as. Avoid using much instead of many before a specific number.
Note: Comparative estimates with as much as are also used before a specific number that refers to weight, distance, or money. For example, as much as ten pounds, as much as two miles, or as much as twenty dollars.
