A number VS The Number

A number --> bermakna 'sejumlah/sekumpulan/banyak'
                ---> sinonim dengan a lot of 
                ---> sama dengan a lot of, a number berbentuk JAMAK. 
Contoh: 
  • A number of students were late for class.
  • A number of students are absent today.
  • A number of planes were delayed due to the snowstorm in Makassar.


The number --> bermakna 'jumlah'
                ---> berbentuk TUNGGAL
Contoh:
  • The number of students in the class is fifteen.
  • The number of employees in my company is approximately ten thousands.
  • The number of passengers affected by the delays was great.
