- For Teachers
Look at the following sentence:
I'd say there were twice as many women at the meeting as men.
I concluded from the above sentence that "The number of the women was twice the number of the men."
Could you please correct my conclusion if I am wrong?

Could we write the sentence in the following form?
I'd say there were women at the meeting twice as many as men.

I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
