I watched this video by Vox titled, "Why there are twice as many solar jobs as coal jobs?" I would never understand what does the title mean if I don't watch the video. I mean, I know that if you say "X is as many as Y" means that X = Y. But when X is added after many, making it "as many X as Y" or "twice as many X as Y", what do they mean?
Here are some possible usages of the phrase:
- There are twice as many blue-collar workers as white-collar workers in this room.
- I bought as many pears as apples which you bought.
- I can see as many adults as teenagers in that bus.
