Quantifiers are words that tell us how many of something we have. For example, in these sentences, the first words are quantifiers:

* One of the cars is red.
* Two of the cars are red.
* Half of the cars are red.
* Some of the cars are red.
* All of the cars are red.
* Each of the cars is red.
* Enough of the cars are red.


Examples of quantifiers:

0%, 10%, 50%, 100%, etc.
½, ¼, etc.
