倍數的表示法有三種

一種是: twice / ___ times + as + 形容詞 + as…

但是三倍以上也可用: ____ times + 比較級形容詞 + than…

比如: This house is twice as big as that one.

This diamond is three times as big as that one.

= This diamond is three times bigger than that one.

This question is ten times as hard as that one.

= This question is ten times harder than that one.

第二種是: twice / ____ times + the + 名詞 (+ of…)

比如: This road is twice the length of that road.

They bought the house at three times the normal price.

第三種是: twice / ____ times + as + much / many + 名詞 + as…

比如: He has twice as much money as me.

They hired three times as many workers as they usually do to finish the job.
