    Exclamation Counting numbers

    Hello everyone,
    Would you please tell me if these sentences are correct and what`s the difference between them?Is there a better way to ask the same question?

    1)What number can you count up to?
    2)How many numbers can you count up to?
    3)How much can you count up to?

    Thanks in advance,

    Thanks in advance,

    How high can you count?
    is the basic and most common question.

    2)How many numbers can you count up to?

    1- OK
    2 - like it better than #3 but sounds like a question you would ask a kid
    3 - "much"? vague...still sounds like a question you'd ask a 5 year old.
