  HSK2.01 Grammar 2.1.3 - Expressing approximate numbers with 几、多

Correction: At 5:41 – the character “个” should be underlined as the measure word, not “月”. The sentence itself is correct, though, just the underline that's off.

Notes:

We use "多" to express approximate amounts:

五千多 over five thousand dollars


If there is no measure word, we add “多” after the quantity:

一年多 ✅


If there is a measure word, we use the construction # + measure word + 多 + noun:

一个多月,一个多星期,一个多小时 ✅

一个月多,一个星期多,一个小时多 ❌


Except

一天多,一分钟多 ❌
一两天,一分多钟 ✅
