Je voudrais quinnze pommes v je voudrais une quinzaine de pommes?

If you wanted to say i would like 15 apples would you use quinze and une quinzaine de for about fifteen apples?

This relates to:
Une dizaine = Ten or so (approximate numbers) -

Bonjour Jennifer !


If you wanted exactly 15 apples, then you'd use "quinze".
"Une quinzaine de" is a way to give an approximate amount :)


Bonne journée !
