When we use an adjective to compare countable nouns, we use ‘as many as’ or ‘as few as’ because ‘many’and ‘few’ are adjectives that are used for countable nouns. Use this pattern: as+ (adjective indicating quantity) + noun + as
Example 1: They have as many children as we do. (using ‘as much children as’ would be incorrect as ‘children’ is a countable noun and so ‘many’ is used.)
Example 2: John has a few books as Jane. (‘few’ is and adjective used for the countable noun ‘book’ in this sentence)
Example 3: They have as many customers as we do.
Example 4: I have 3 sisters. That’s as many as you have.
When we use an adjective to compare uncountable nouns, we use ‘as much as’ or ‘as little as’ because ‘much’ and ‘little’ are adjectives that are used for uncountable nouns.
Example 1: John eats as much food as Peter. (‘food’ is an uncountable noun as so ‘much’ is used to compare quantity.)
Example 2: She has as little patience as me.
Example 3: They’ve got as little water as we have.
Example 4: I’m not hungry. I’ve had as much as she has.
