- I made up the sentence "The horse is one and a half times my height".
Does it mean that the horse's height or length is 1.5 times my height?
- "I am more than two times smaller than the ostrich."
Does it mean that I am bigger than half the ostrich or I am X times (X>2) smaller than the ostrich? Following logic, I think the latter is correct.
- Are these correct and do they mean the same?
A) I run twice slower than the ostrich.
B) My speed is half that of the ostrich.
C) My speed is 0.5 times that of the ostrich.
D) I am 0.5 times the speed of the ostrich.
E) I run twice as slow as the ostrich.
- Are these correct?
A) The horse runs more than 3 times faster than me.
B) The horse weighs more than 5 times my weight.
C) The horse runs more than 3 times as fast as me.
D) The horse weighs more than 5 times more than me.
E) The horse weighs more than 5 times as much as me.
F) The speed of the horse is (more or higher, please, let me know) than 3 times my speed.
