Example sentences using "Number"

Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com Insufficient number of votes for victory - - - - - -or - - - - - - - Insufficient quantity of votes for victory???? What difference??? .
A: Quantity is the measurement unit, whereas number refers to the chits used for votes. If you say quantity of votes, then you have to measure the weight of those voting chits. If you say Number of votes, then you just have to count those voting chits. So, "Insufficient nuber of votes for victory" is the right sentence
Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com a considerable number of people.
A: 안녕하세요!

usually sentences involve vowels with a plural context. For example:

"many people like music".

"a lot of people hate math".

"so many people like movies".

There are a lot of sentences that can be used to express a group of people. Verbs like "Many" and other verbs like it involve a plural context with a lot of one object, not just people. However, there are also vowels specific to people. One of the most common words is "everyone". Unlike the other words, this one is specific to people. So if you were going to use this in a sentence, it would be something like:

"everyone hates ducks".

you can see that the spelling for the word "hate" has changed. This word is being pluralised to account for the amount of people you are talking about in this sentence. There is no need to explain context, because we already understand what you mean by using a word like "everyone". In english, most words are pluralised by putting an "S" at the end of them.

Hopefully this helps!

Synonyms of "Number" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre The number of corrections made by him is 47,000! e The number of corrections made by him are 47,000! ?
A: They're both "right" but the real correct one is the second because "corrections" is plural and it would use "are" and not "is".

But people do use "is" so it's technically right in this case. This isn't always the case but this is an exception I think.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre The number of visitors fluctuated slightly at the theme park e The number of visitors at the theme park fluctuated very slightly ?

Q: Qual é a diferença entre I want you to increase the number of XXX. e I want you to make the number of XXX increase. ?
