How many of you ?
Say, I am working in a hotel and when a guest comes in I want to know ask the number of people come with him/her. Is that the question ?
" May I know how many of you " ?
I wish to know the typical way of saying so :P . Hopefully this is it :)
How many (people) will there be?
How many will you (plural) be?
How many will be checking in (with us)?
Cybil: There'll be just 7 of us today.

"How many are in your group?" is, I think, a question that is commonly asked in such situations.
Thanks Cas and Ron :)
Simple form of speech can easily put non-native speakers down so often :P
I think I know what you mean to say. Please tell me if I am right.

(You can't use putdown, because a putdown is an insult.)
Being a native speaker, I have an enormous advantage, because I "pick things up" just by hearing them. However, it did take me decades to get to where I am.
You are welcome
You are welcome always.
